Community Engagement & Outreach
Art for All Community Programme
G F and Mary Watts cared deeply about a number of social, environmental and cultural issues, many of which are still relevant today. These concerns are reflected in the both their art and in the public community projects they founded.
At the heart of their work was the belief that art could transform lives, and they campaigned to widen access to art for people in society with the least access to it. Their Art for All ethos continues to be at the heart of all we do at the Artists' Village.
