ArtFull formed in Summer 2012, based in Preston, Lancashire. A phoenix rising from the ashes of cultural cuts which have limited the accessibly of local community to quality art.  ArtFull is a collective of skilled artists and practitioners, Becky Atherton, Bernie Velvick, Teresa East and chair Jo Cook..  


ArtFull forges ahead - helping Community Groups access funding for art projects, working with schools, delivering innovative art projects, curating exhibitions, organising festivals with partners and designing accessible publications.


All of the ArtFull team are skilled fundraisers and facilitators and will work with groups and organisations to design and deliver inspired community lead projects.

COMMUNITY GROUPS AND VOLUNTARY ORGANISATIONS

Over many years Becky and Bernie from ArtFull have built up relationships with tons of groups working in Preston and Lancashire. This helps us in our aim to reach people who don't have access to arts and creative activities.
