About YAAG 

Supported by socially engaged arts organisation Take A Part, YAAG is made up of community organisations, local authority and town council representation, heritage, libraries and communities partners across Yeovil.  Over the course of 2021/22, the YAAG commissioned artists to work with young people and heritage assets in the town to create engaging events and workshops that open up conversations around art and cultural ambitions in Yeovil Town.  

VISION: To use creativity to build culture, community and identity in Yeovil

MISSION: Celebrating and connecting everyone in Yeovil through creativity and culture; fostering unity, embracing change and championing inclusivity.

AIMS:

  • To focus on place-making and co-create contemporary art activities with communities, groups and stakeholders that carry wider aims, i.e. social change, regeneration, economic growth and community cohesion. 
  • To nurture new artistic ideas through partnership working, together to build reputation and new audiences for the work that is innovative, impactful, positive, relevant and specific to Yeovil.
