[17 NOV 98] STRATFORD ON AVON DISTRICT COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Public Meeting For New Art Gallery

In 1996 Stratford District Council were awarded 18,000 from the National Lottery to transform the concourse area of Stratford Leisure & Visitor Centre into an art gallery.

The aim of the gallery is to show both touring and local work and to be a centre of information and activity for visual arts.

"I hope the gallery will be recognised as a venue for innovative and challenging work and that it will be a source of inspiration to local and regional arts activity as well as providing the community with a place to show their work and promote local artists,"

says Councillor Geoff Freeman, Chairman of the District Council's Community Services Committee.

"Creating the gallery in a non traditional venue allows the arts to be more accessible and will attract new audiences. The gallery will be a source of information on the arts for residents of the district and visitors alike."

The development of the gallery is still at an early stage and the first physical changes to the space are about to take place. The public meeting is being held to give people the opportunity to share their views and to hear more about the gallery.

Date: Tuesday 24 November 1998
Time: 7.30pm
Venue: Stratford Leisure & Visitor Centre, Bridgefoot, Stratford-upon-Avon
Event: Public meeting to discuss the new art gallery at Stratford Leisure & Visitor Centre
