Take Art is a unique, life-changing organisation that doesn’t live in an arts venue, dance studio or whacking great theatre but in the villages, towns and rural communities of Somerset.
Every year we bring diverse, exciting and empowering arts experiences to thousands of people, no matter their age, inclination or background.
