ART CARE EDUCATION (ACEARTS)Making the difference by enhancing life through art
ACEarts aims to provide art and creative activity to inspire, empower and enable people to develop and grow. We do this through the delivery of an annual programme of exhibitions and associated workshops and creative activities designed to encourage people of all ages and abilities to benefit from engagement with the arts.
We chose the name of our charity, Art Care Education (ACE), because our objective is to bring together these three elements for the benefit of all our participants, no matter which entry route they take to join us:
Art: enabling art and crafts people to have an opportunity to bring their work into the public domain – giving them the chance to display and sell their work to the public via the retail space, through exhibitions and to connect directly with their audience
Care: working closely with other organisations to bring creativity into the lives of the people who use their services, with a focus on health and wellbeing for the local community, especially older people, school aged children and those with mental health difficulties and learning differences.
Education: providing workshops and courses for all members of the local community to attend and to become involved in “art” in the broadest sense
