Our Societies support hundreds of local arts and heritage projects. Each day we highlight a grant given in 2021. 

Age Concern, Sandwich has received a grant from The Arts Society Sandwich. Their Sunflower Centre for people with dementia, provides a range of artistic activities. The grant will enhance music within the centre, including group singing, engaging a music therapist, and the purchase of equipment and musical instruments.

All donations from the Artvent Calendar will go towards The Arts Society’s grant giving fund, which awards grants to help preserve our artistic heritage, support the skills of artists and makers, and improve access to the arts for all.

Gill Greatorex asked earlier today who painted the picture in the webpage banner. The picture is a detail from Edvard Munch's painting "Winter In The Woods, Nordstrand" completed in 1899.
