Rowan is a Cambridge based arts centre and charity where artists and craftspeople work with learning-disabled people. We are a vibrant and active part of the art community in Cambridge; has an excellent reputation and is considered to be a forward-looking organisation, committed to developing new opportunities in partnership with individuals and organisations. We work with a range of partners locally and regionally to offer wider opportunities to our students. This includes going on visits and taking part in a wide range of activities in and out of the studios, such as with the National Trust’s Anglesey Abbey and Wimpole Hall, Cambridge University Botanic Gardens, Cambridge Past Present and Future, Milton Country Park and University of Cambridge Museums (UCM).
Rowan encourages and develops wide-ranging community participation and engagement projects including taking part in exhibitions around Cambridge including Chelsea Fringe 2015, Cambridge Open Studios, local community art project Mitcham’s Models, and a joint exhibition with local arts organisation White House Arts. We also attend and run art workshops at local events such as Chesterton Community Festival and of course take part in the University of Cambridge’s Festival of Ideas!
