About Us

Contains Art provides flexible, affordable space for artists, designers and makers to develop and showcase their work and to connect with the creative and wider communities of Western Somerset.

Contains Art aims to:
  • Inspire creative ambition
  • Develop professional practice
  • Foster collaboration and critical engagement
  • Uncover and support emerging practice
  • Promote creative business
  • Connect creative communities and audiences
