THE ARTS SOCIETY WORCESTER

Since 1973, every NADFAS Society has a Young Arts section, leading children and young people towards arts and culture, not easily available to them in other ways. The vision is equality of opportunity for all to learn through participation in all aspects of the arts.

In recent years, City of Worcester DFAS has sponsored an artist to lead children at Acorns Children’s Hospice, together with their siblings, to create two murals. The following year, the same artist lead a card designing activity, and these cards were printed and packaged for sale by the Hospice.

More recently funding was given to a city school to enable a boys’ dance group to put on a performance for both the public and our Society, and last year we were instrumental in the production of items for the “Voices and Visions” exhibition held in the Cloisters of Worcester Cathedral.

This coming year there will be an activity at Tudor Grange, our new lecture venue, through the Art department at the Academy together with our new Young Arts representative, Jane Hordern. Details will be posted later in the year. If any members wish to participate in these activities, please contact Jane through Contact Us.
