DART Gallery is offering the opportunity for local artists to sell their products and to inspire young students in their creative endeavours. The official launch date for DART is set for the 21st of June, to be opened by Wayne Hemingway and sponsored by the international company, Graham & Brown.
DART Gallery is a student led social enterprise, located within the confines of Darwen Aldridge Community Academy, an Academy and Sixth Form located within Lancashire. DART will sell and exhibit artwork and contemporary products, including crafts, produced by the local community and global on-trend purchasing. DART will also serve as a creative hub for the local community for learning new skills, sharing new skills and as a stepping stone for people in the community to build their own creative businesses. In terms of footfall, on site, we have over 1,100 staff and students daily, over 200 local people a week who visit our location for adult learning courses and over 300 visitors a week from across the region who visit us for various reasons.
