Jennifer Longton – Arts for the Young

A Young Arts project is an arts related activity for an individual, or a number of young people, which has been funded wholly or partly by a NADFAS society.

Over the last 2 years we have enabled children from local primary schools to take part in the Malling Arts Festival. We have enabled young people with disabilities to take part in an Art project in Rochester Cathedral.

Recently Ryarsh Primary School had funding from Malling DFAS and a grant from the Patricia Fay fund to enable them to employ an artist Darcy Turner to work with the children to create an installation in the school grounds. Several classes of children benefited from this activity.

The Value of Touch                                  November 2013

Rochester Cathedral is proud to announce the installation of “The Value of Touch”, a tactile bronze interpretation of Sergei Fyodorov’s Baptismal Fresco.  This is  the culmination of a three year partnership between artist Wendy Daws, the Kent Association for the Blind Medway Art Group and Rochester Cathedral.  The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Kent Area NADFAS.
