Art For Macmillan Cancer Support was founded by Regional Chair of Arts at Macmillan, Anton Dolders (pictured directly below) in 2011 to help provide care for people, families and communities effected by cancer, through a variety of creative means including: provision of art and craft tuition and demonstrations; exhibiting work created mainly by local practitioners and also organizing music, poetry and dance performances.
Exhibited work includes drawings, paintings, sculpture/3D design, craft and also fashion in both traditional and contemporary styles, created mainly by North West based artists, sculptors and designers but others from further afield are often included.
Art For Macmillan relies considerably upon the generosity of property, retail and service industry management and owners for their support in providing exhibition space and venues in which to demonstrate creative skills and to teach art and craft as ways of raising funds for our cause.
This website outlines our current and forthcoming art exhibitions and events in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. For further information call 0774 900 6213
