MAKE A CHANGE WITH THE ARTS WITH US

We are recruiting to a number of voluntary positions to join our Women’s Advisory Board.

Lon-art is a small yet powerful Community Interest Company that aims to open a window onto art and culture through education workshops and community events.

Our vision is to improve the accessibility of creativity, culture and learning for everybody through the arts. Our mission is to provide a platform for communities, artists and educators to collaborate, reflect and create.

We do this through museum tours, art workshops and social exhibitions. Our flagship project is SHEROES – a collaborative project bringing together UK and international artists, feminist organisations, charities and the general public. SHEROES aims to use creative expression to give a voice to and turn our eyes towards silenced and overlooked heroines – sheroes – throughout herstory, and offer inspiring female role models for us all. 

Here you can take a look at what happened at our first Sheroes exhibition in March 2018!
