Welcome to Pool Arts
Pool Arts, the organisation, is a work of art in its own right, that is constantly evolving and adapting itself to create opportunities for artists who may otherwise find themselves isolated or disadvantaged in the art world – it asks who an artist might be today. Alison Kershaw artist St Lukes Art Project Pool Arts aim to challenge the barriers that some artists face, by providing opportunities to create:
- Innovative exhibitions
- New artwork
- Personal and professional development opportunities and facilities for artists in the Manchester (UK) area.
- A supportive and sustainable studio base
Pool Arts was formed in 1999 – and is run by and for its members. The artists involved come from diverse backgrounds and their chosen art forms are equally varied. Pool Arts include writers, photographers, textile and fashion artists, craftspeople, and a DJ as well as contemporary visual artists. They are working to create a supportive framework, giving their members opportunities to produce, promote, and sell their own artwork. Pool Arts also educates the general public, raising awareness of the positive role that art and culture can play in the well being of the community by providing a positive role model of an arts organisation successfully run by its members. Through our work in local, regional, and national networks of art, health, and arts and health projects, Pool Arts aim to contribute to this growing area of interest with their pioneering company.
