I'd like to propose the setting up a fund for the development of new arts projects in Swanage. This would help those young artists who invariabley have to move away from the area to make their mark and also to help those practitioners who do stay and then have few resources for interesting new work. Although Dorset and Purbeck has its share of good amateur art this does not encourage those who are trying to do more than have fun. There is now a number of interesting new initiatives which could help provide money and resources. These include the Weymouth Olympic Bid, the Arts Council Activate Project in Dorset and, of course, The Jurassic Park stuff. All we have to do is to ask....
