About the Community Art Open Space:

This is intended to be a creative space where everyone who comes along can create their own work or do joint ventures with the idea of creating an exhibition later in the year (optional). Great tunes in the background are a bonus!

It is a very social group, welcoming to young and older generations and loosely facilitated by Jake and his friends with an intention to share art techniques and methods.



About donations:

Participation in our community-led events is often on a voluntary ‘by donation’ basis. This means that nobody is expected to make a payment if they cannot afford to do so. However, any donations received will be shared between the Centre and the facilitator, helping to make the events’ programme sustainable as well as to provide some reciprocity towards community facilitators’ time and skills offered.

Where a “suggested donation” is listed, this is just an indication of what the event might cost if it was ticketed – it is fine to donate less (or nothing at all). Donating is one way to show your appreciation for the value of the Salisbury Centre. Please consider ‘paying it forward’ by donating a bit extra if you can afford, helping to keep it possible for everyone to take part, regardless of their circumstances. 


To donate: 

  • bring cash on the evening, or 
  • donate online on  www.salisburycentre.org/donate  (using “Open art class” as REFERENCE). 
  • pay with card at the front door, please add a reference (eg. open art) using the pen icon top right on the pay-point screen


This is an invitation to practice ‘Dana’ (generosity) – please pay only what you can afford to attend. If you cannot afford the event, please get in touch with the facilitator to request a free/discounted place.
