Venues and Artists


ST-ART always works with a partner venue to deliver its activities. ST-ART will provide an artist and all the materials needed for the activity, and the partner provides the venue and a childcare worker to assist the artist on the day.

ST-ART runs activities at various venues across North Lincolnshire, with its main location in Barton upon Humber but also serving local towns and rural villages. ST-ART activities have been hosted at the following venues:

The Ropewalk, Barton Upon Humber
Stepping Stones of Scawby
Barrow Village Hall
Riddings Childrens Centre
Winterton Old School Hall
South Killingholme Community Centre
Broughton Village Hall
Westcliff Youth Centre
South Ferriby Primary
South Ferriby Village Hall

If you would like to discuss the possibility of hosting an activity at your venue please get in touch.
