The Arts Society Bristol


The Committee performs a wide range of jobs to run the society. This includes keeping membership records, arranging lecture series, organising study days, trips and holidays, awarding bursaries to schools and funding arts projects for schoolchildren. There are roles which involve hosting the lecturer before and after meetings, organising the lecture programme itself and overseeing the recording of church artefacts. Committee elections take place at the January AGM and the committee takes charge from 1st July that year to 30th June the following year. We are always keen to welcome new members to the Committee and any member who would like to know more about the different roles on offer can contact any committee member for more information.
