We have been running the Arran Poetry Adventure for the past ten years. Renting cottages and running workshops. To open access we need funds

We have successfully run workshops on the beautiful island of Arran for the past ten years. Providing a relaxed artistic community that has inspired young and old writers, poets & artists. 

We would like to employ tutors and subsidise accommodation so that this unique event is open to everybody no matter their circumstances. 

Arran has inspired a generation of poets from the North West of England & the rest of the world. This cross cultural meeting has developed the careers and the skill of many artists.

The island it self is known as Scotland in miniature, combining beautiful scenery and historic ruins. It's local community is friendly and open to creative strangers. 

We usually rent 2 or more cottages to house artists for a week. However the cost excludes some people. We would like to raise funds to cover 4 cottages and pay 5 tutors. This would cost at least £7000. 

I hope you can help , and indeed will apply to come on next years Arran Poetry Adventure 2020, make art, make friends and build our dream of one day establishing a permanent Arran Poetry Adventure presence on the island.  

Thank you
