CULTIVATE is our arts programme for young people aged 15 to 25. Together with artists and other young creatives, we research, experiment and make artwork.

From August Cultivate will embark on a new project exploring artist's studio practice.

Cultivate is a once-a-month arts programme for 15 – 25-year-olds. Led by artist Emma Posey, Cultivate is a great way for young people, with an interest in the arts, to develop their creative thinking and making skills through research and experimentation. The group offers a unique social space for those growing up in the region to work alongside artists and other professionals with a broad range of expertise. Cultivate takes an innovative approach to learning to engage with a creative practice – the group focuses on a specific idea as an ongoing area of enquiry over a specific period of time and builds an artistic response.

There’s space for more young people from the region to participate in Cultivate and we encourage you to take part:

Cultivate is FREE to attend
Monthly sessions are held at The Sidney Nolan Trust’s base near Presteigne.
Cultivate is funded by generous support from Herefordshire Community Foundation and The Ashley Family Foundation.
