ARTS charity, Settle Stories is inviting artists to become more involved with their work after taking on board the recently discontinued, Three Peaks Arts.

Three Peaks Arts was founded in 2018 with the aim of supporting and encouraging emerging artists throughout North Craven and beyond. It also ran the ‘Three Peaks Arts Trail’.

Now, former members are being encouraged to continue working together at Settle Stories’ FEAST’ artists networking sessions. The charity also hope to involve members more deeply in its upcoming Yorkshire Festival of Story, due to take place in November.

Charles Tyrer, its executive director, said: “We’re very excited about providing opportunities for Three Peaks Arts under the Settle Stories banner. Settle Stories will continue to create opportunities for former members of Three Peaks Arts and other visual artists through FEAST, our bi-monthly online creative networking group.

“Our planned November international Yorkshire Festival Story, will also – subject to funding – incorporate workshops and events with and for visual artists.”

Settle Stories artistic networking platform, FEAST, now in its third year has more than 120 members.

Moving online in 2020, the group, which is free to join, welcomes creatives from all around the world. The bi-monthly format includes speakers and discussions as well as the opportunity for members to exclusively apply for Seed Funding made available by Craven District Council.

Current beneficiaries include Craven textile artist, Morag Hewitt and Cassandra Wye, a Bristol based story teller, who are working remotely together to create sensory props and puppets for a story telling show for children with special needs.
