In keeping with its charitable status, The Arts Society supports conservation and preservation projects throughout the United Kingdom. Here in Stratford-upon-Avon, STRADFAS, through our Arts in the Community Programme, offer grants to organisations that use arts projects to improve the lives of disadvantaged groups. We even write Church Trails for younger children!
Members also undertake conservation work, such as repairing books and costumes, through our group of Heritage Volunteers. We have worked with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust on creating period display costumes, and have restored heritage church vestments.
Other members are involved in our Church Recorders group and enjoy the fascinating activity of recording every detail of a local church, from its stonework to its memorials and its windows. These reports are submitted to national institutions such as the V&A.
There are individual pages for each group, with descriptions of current and past projects.
