Arts for Rutland is a Registered Charity committed to leading, promoting and supporting the arts in Rutland. It consists of a small volunteer committee that aims to be representative of the county’s arts organisations and various creative disciplines.
Over recent years we have organised some large cultural events across the county – in 2011 the Four Winds Festival was a weekend event designed to make the most of its spectacular shoreline setting by Normanton Church Museum, Rutland Water, and in June 2014 Mobilisation was a large scale community event at Kendrew Barracks, part of the Lord-Lieutenant of Rutland’s initiative for the commemoration of World War I.
We also operate a Small Grant Scheme with Rutland County Council aimed at supporting small artistic projects in the county, and in conjunction with Funky Tents we can offer a package of marquees and other equipment for hire at subsidised rates to organisations in the county.
