Element arts is a Southampton based arts organisation offering creative arts and heritage community projects, that aims to take the arts to wider audiences, to facilitate collaboration and community engagement, and to connect people with their environment, heritage and with their own creativity.

In 2013 element arts(a team of five professional arts managers, producers and artists from Southampton) with the help of many volunteers, set up The Wool House Project, a voluntary initiative to reopen Southampton’s Grade 1 listed Wool House, and former Maritime Museum, as a pop up arts venue, whilst the city council followed through a proposal from a private commercial venture, for it to become a pub/brewery.

The Wool House Project engaged approx. 12,000 members of the public and, during the six months it was open, worked with 200 artists, held 5 professional art exhibitions and served as a tourist information centre, gave “food for the soul” through its arts events and café, nurtured emerging young local talent from musicians to playwrights and visual artists, partnered with the local school, students from Solent university and other arts and heritage organisations in the city. It was a haven for culture for both the local and visiting community.

The project was entirely self-funding, paid full commercial business rates and covered all utility bills.(For a full report about the project see: http://elementarts.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/WHP-full-report-for-website1.pdf)

Adam Gent – of Arts Council England SW had this to say about element arts:-
“element arts is an organisation you would want to invent if it didn't exist. The combination of engaging with communities, providing support and networks for artists and producing work which responds to the rich social and built environment in Southampton is a good fit for the time of change and development in the city at the moment”. (October 2013)

Building upon this highly successful legacy, element arts are currently looking for a new venue and, in the meantime will be taking part in Ejector Seat Festival on 14th June (www.ejectorseat.co.uk ), as well as planning other exciting projects for the future.
