About Guernsey Arts
Guernsey Arts is the umbrella charity which directly supports Island artists and Bailiwick arts organisations in a wide variety of arts disciplines including performing arts, dance, visual arts, music and literature. Established in 2008 as the Guernsey Arts Commission, the charity offers grant funding, advice, networking and inspiration, as well as creating and curating events across the whole community. Resources are used wisely to support all facets of the arts community.

Guernsey Arts Day
Guernsey Arts Day is a new initiative from Guernsey Arts to celebrate the arts in the Bailiwick. Join the Guernsey Arts team and supporters for a fun filled day of free activities in Market Square on 24 February. There will be performances throughout the day from Lé Quartaette, Jon Shaban, Clameur de Haro and the cast from GADOC’s Guys and Dolls and more. Come and be a part of Les Residences Croisées by creating a ceramic leaf with artist Yasmin Atkinson, who will be in situ throughout the day.

Several buildings on island including Beau Séjour, Government House, St James and Fort Grey will be lit up in Guernsey Arts’ magenta colour to raise awareness of the amazing arts scene on island. The Guernsey Arts team will also be available to meet for all queries relating to membership, grants funding and upcoming opportunities from 12 – 2pm 21 – 23 February in the OSA Pop Up Shop and 10am – 4pm on 24 February in the Market Square pop up area.
