To empower the commuinty on a hands on approach to explore the arts in a sustained accessible way.
To help established artists and promote their work though public exposure and in the artistic world.
Background to the Charity
ARTISJUSTAWORD was created in 2001 by two 16 year olds, with a core belief in making the visual arts inclusive.
In 2006 the organization became a registered charity.
The charity's work is predominantly focused in the Oxfordshire area. More recently projects further afield in London have offered the charity opportunity to work on projects with national visibility. Longer term out hope is to strengthen these links to create recurring national projects.
