Description

Open for Art 2019

28 June – 7 July

Reading’s festival showcasing our arts, heritage, culture and creative industries.

#OpenForArt www.jelly.org.uk

We will be celebrating quiet spaces, learning new skills and acknowledging the positive impact that the Arts has on everyday life. There will be artists residencies and a chance for you to experience seeing art through someone else’s eyes, a chance to ‘walk in their shoes’. During the week, we are giving even more people the opportunity to take part in our award-winning workshops for free.

Open for Art is the biggest voluntary project we run, only made possible by the generosity of our volunteers, supporters and friends.

Everyday we see the positive impact that art has on people's lives and to celebrate this, our theme for Open for Art 2019 is 'The arts and wellbeing'.

#OpenForArt #thejellyreading

The team of Arts Ambassadors can be found throughout the weekend, identifiable with their t-shirts and lollipops with maps and information ready to share.

The Open for Art Festival is curated by Jelly and made possible by working in partnership with a wide range of groups, individuals, schools, students and businesses.

Sponsored by The Oracle, Reading Business Improvement District, Cream Design, Reading UK, RGSpaces Broad Street Mall and all the venues and hosts.

Funded by Arts Council England

Open for Art is just one of many events delivered by Jelly. As recognition for our work, we were awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (The ‘MBE’). We aim to make everything we do free, accessible, and available to those restricted by social and economic reasons. Projects would not happen, nor would we reach as many people, without the support we receive. From businesses to individuals; volunteers to donations: every contribution matters. To support our work please get in touch. Email belong@jelly.org.uk, or visit jelly.org.uk/supporting-jelly
