Meadow Arts brings unique contemporary art projects to places where art is not usually shown, supporting artists by commissioning new work and creating inspiring events and exhibitions.
Please help us to do this by making a donation. Whether it's big or small, your donation will help us to bring contemporary art to more people in the West Midlands; reach communities who don't have much access to arts and culture; work with school children across the region, including in special needs schools and those in areas of deprivation. It also helps us to support emerging artists, including local arts graduates via a mentoring programme called the Meadow Arts Prize, awarded annually in association with the Hereford College of Arts and University of Worcester Fine Art departments.
Meadow Arts works with a variety of host venues across the West Midlands, including stately homes, public spaces, historic landscapes, museums & libraries, schools and colleges, to reach new audiences. We strive to deliver high quality art, supporting emerging as well as high profile artists and curators. Our exhibitions are accompanied by imaginative engagement activities, family events, workshops and curator tours. We also work in schools with our highly regarded education programme Meadow Arts Inspires.
Meadow Arts is a registered charity and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. We receive funding support from donations, trusts, foundations and the organisations we partner to deliver our work. Our public commissions programme, Meadow Projects, exhibits artworks in public spaces across Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
