Lyme Bay Arts CIC

A team of artists, art lecturers and exhibition curators has come together to form Lyme Bay Arts CIC: a members-based and not for profit ‘community interest company’.  Lyme Bay Arts works with emerging and established artists and makers of every style, medium and dimension, as well as other community arts organisations.  It aims to build sustainable exhibition, workshop and event platforms on which these individuals and groups can collaborate. Its catchment is the whole region around Lyme Bay, and its permanent home is a new exhibition space it has created on the Symondsbury Estate near Bridport, called The Gallery.  In June-July 2019 it started its outreach programme with several pop-up venues on the Lyme Regis seafront.
