Thank you for voting for our entry in the Aviva Community Fund competition. We got 866 votes which was enough for us to win £985 so that we can continue providing free and affordable arts and crafts activities at community events this year, so please be sure to check out our calendar from time to time : The Art Ministry Events Calendar


Become a Co-op Member for just £1 and until the end of October 2017 The Art Ministry will receive 1% of the cost of any   Co-op branded items that you buy. You will get 5% cash back! Make sure that you choose The Art Ministry as your "local cause". You can join up here.


We have already benefited from being part of the Co-op Local Community Fund from October 2016 to April 2017. The Art Ministry has just been awarded £2,825.26 towards the cost of providing its weekly arts and crafts session for adults with learning and/or physical disabilities. We are very grateful to local Co-op Members for their support. You can see details of this project here.


We are running our annual competition to find a picture to hang in the Castle Point Mayor’s Office. It is for year 5 and 6 children living in or going to school in Castle Point. The theme is “A celebration of Castle Point”, since it is the 25th anniversary of the creation of the Borough. All entries will be displayed at the Hadleigh Old Fire Station on 6th July. In 2016 we received over 300 entries. The Mayor selected five winning pictures which have been framed and put up in their office. The winners have met the Mayor to be awarded a certificate and to see their pictures on display. You can see some of the winners here. Details of how to enter are here. Closing date is 29th June.
