THE PORTHLEVEN ARTS COMMUNITY
What we do
We believe that everyone has the basic right to experience art. Through an annual calendar of events, culminating in an annual Autumn festival, we’re encouraging participation, appreciation and ultimately making art accessible in all its forms. We want Porthleven to become a place where artists work, exhibit and live and that people visit to experience art.
Arts opportunities for all“Its great to to see a representative body of all the talent Porthleven has to offer which will offer opportunities for established and up and coming creative talent .”
Raising Porthleven's profile“Porthleven is a haven for creativity and artists' alike - Porthleven Arts will be able to offer further development of local artists' opportunities”

Projects & what to expect
24 September – 2 October 2022
Held over 10 days in Autumn, the Porthleven Art Festival is an annual celebration of everything the Porthleven Art Community has achieved over the previous 12 months.
It’s an opportunity for exhibitions, performance, participation and most importantly celebration.
We encourage arts-related projects which will enrich the cultural offering in Cornwall and increase opportunities for artists working in its various disciplines. There are already a number of projects in progress and Porthleven Art Community welcomes new ideas for projects as well as new members wishing to be involved in current projects.
Porthleven Arts will be actively involved in campaigns, network events and advocacy groups promoting cultural activity and supporting artists.
Devoted to creativity, imagination, arts development and educational support geared towards community development.
An annual calendar of events, competitions and prizes which reflect the arts community objectives are currently envisaged including exhibitions, residencies, performance and learning opportunities for all.
We’ll promote opportunities to artists in the community, supporting them and encouraging collaboration. And we’ll bring the community together with more opportunities to experience and get involved in art-based projects and events

Porthleven Arts is a Community Interest Company. We need the support of individuals to make this project a success. To give identity, shape and recognition to this ambitious endeavour, the enthusiasm and commitment of individual members who are artists or supportive of the arts and its creative impact is important.
As a member you can join working groups for projects you are interested in, contribute new ideas, start your own projects with the support of others or simply just support Porthleven Arts. We’re starting numerous art projects in Porthleven and we’d love you to get involved.
