Test Valley Arts Foundation is an independent grant giving charity established in 1991 by the late Michael Colvin MP. We are Test Valley based with a vision of supporting, creating and improving artistic opportunities for our local communities. Our key objectives are:
to encourage a wide range of arts and music in the Test Valley
to support local cultural activity and help talented individuals and groups with their work in all art forms
to raise funds and give grants
to promote a variety of artistic initiatives including events and projects within Test Valley
to take experience of the arts to the wider community
