To create a supportive environment in which artists are encouraged to develop their practice
To provide an affordable, inclusive environment for the making and showing of art and for creative learning to use creativity to promote the health and well-being of the people of Swindon.

Charity Number: 1124602
Companies House Number: 6449964
As a charity we don't receive any funding, therefore all our costs must be funded by hire fees, studio rent and grants. As most charities this year we are facing a huge increase in our energy bills. If you are able we would be grateful of any support you could give Artsite at this time to keep us running.
Vicky Silver 1945-2022
It is with great sadness that Artsite informs our community that our dear friend, trustee and founding member Vicky Silver died on 29th Of December 2022.
Vicky leaves behind her husband Mervyn and son Richard, who we hold in our thoughts and memories.
For over 20 years Vicky was part of a team who grew our community through her love for art, creativity and togetherness. Always striving for fairness and equality within the arts and the wider community.
Vicky will be missed more than words can express but we are thankful for our chance to have worked with such a beautiful person for 23 years.
Funeral plans are still tbc, we will keep you informed.
