The work Live Art Local CIC does is divided into projects. We run various projects with the aim of increasing participation in the arts and making art more accessible to all.
A Selection of our Projects
Sticks Gallery is nomadic in nature, currently with its main site in Fareham Shopping Centre. We also run exhibitions in various meanwhile spaces and have a full program of contemporary art exhibitions and workshops with a particular focus on supporting and exposing the work of emerging artists of all ages.
Our Affiliate Artists scheme is attached to our gallery space. We run regular artist socials, workshops, crit groups, have free submissions for exhibitions, alert artists to other opportunities, run an online gallery and more.
Our aim is to give artists as much help as possible in developing their work and establishing a career in the arts irrespective of their age or background.

We will be running a mini event in the summer this year instead.
