The South West is full of both creative possibility and community minded individuals and organisations – imagine what we can do if we work together”.
“The workshop is designed to for those who like to make things happen and for those whose artistic practice is emerging or established, professional or amateur. I’m looking forward to seeing what connections and projects can be formed” Ms de Garis continued.
