  • Children and their families can spend time together, bonding through taking part in free, creative activities such as Scribble and Sketch activities at Easton Community Centre, which are so popular 
  • We can support schools and school children by offering activities to help them gain an Arts Award, a nationally-recognised qualification
  • We can continue to support the artist ecology in the South West by offering opportunities for our 150-strong Academicians and Artist Network members
  • We can continue to look after our amazing Grade II* listed building, including essential repairs to the roof and rooflights
  • We can reduce our bills by replacing our expensive lighting tracks with more energy-efficient ones
