The Arts Portfolio was set up in 2017 and ran several very successful community art fairs and events. In 2020 the company was turned into a Community Interest Company (C.I.C.) with the aim to seek funding to further support and develop the arts within the community as well as enable us to provide more practical and financial support to talented young people to access the arts.
The Arts Portfolio will be based at Melford Gallery in Mayfield and use the gallery space and gardens to put on events, run workshops and promote young talent across the arts.
