Looking forward and looking back

In common with many arts organisations in the present economic climate St George’s Arts is having to take a break for a while. We are immensely proud of our achievements over the past few years and so glad to have been able to work with the inspiring and interesting artists that we did. We would like to thank them for their hard work and the enjoyment that they and their work brought to St Georges. We would also like to thank our funders and supporters both organisations and individuals who have made the art programme of residencies, exhibitions and workshops since 2007 possible.
