In an effort to reach out and bring the arts to an even wider audience, the Scottish Arts Club has established a Charitable Trust – The Scottish Arts Club Charitable Trust – the principle aims of which are:
- To advance all forms of the creative arts in Scotland,
- To improve the accessibility of all forms of the creative arts to the general public, and
- To encourage and assist in the development of up-and-coming artists, exhibitors and performers in all forms of the creative arts.
The Trust is the charitable arm of the Scottish Arts Club, set up within the OSCR framework, and it is hoped that Club members will appreciate the opportunity it affords to share their passion for the arts with others, particularly the young. If the Trust is to achieve its aims, we need your help. We need your ideas and suggestions on what we might do and who might help us to do it; we need your assistance in running events — and we need your financial support.
So, if you have contacts for sponsorship, would like to donate, or are willing to help in any way, please get in touch with any of the trustees. They are all Club members — Charlie Scott, David Lyle, Gordon Mitchell, Hilary Mounfield, Mhairi Kerr and Tom Drake.
The Scottish Arts Club
We run an eclectic programme of diverse events for members and guests, who come to enjoy regular exhibitions of paintings and a busy series of lectures, talks, films, music, and other entertainments. We have an on-line members' magazine, ClubLife, publilcly accessible, here, which includes our programme of events over six months, as well as articles, reviews and opinions on all aspects of the Arts. (For advertising rates in ClubLife click here.)
Our professional members include painters and sculptors, movie-makers and muscians, planners, playwrights and poets, novelists and journalists, architects and designers, dancers and diplomats. Lay members range from academics, accountants and administrators, to dentists and doctors, lawyers and librarians, and scientists and students, all with an interest in the Arts.
The Scottish Arts Club was founded by a group of artists in 1872 and moved to Rutland Square in 1895. We intend to be here for a long time to come! Undo
