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.
Originating from an idea by Ged Stephenson, this festival of quick fire one minute films, has been commissioned collaboratively with Wassail Theatre during Covid-19 lockdown for the theatre-making community in Somerset to support each other in these challenging and surreal times.More info
