Project Background
InVolve, Visit, Volunteer for Yeovil Country Park – V3 PROJECT 

The V3 project aims to improve the opportunities and facilities for volunteers, visitors and the local community.

Contributing to the V3 Project Somerset Art Works (SAW) is delivering a three year artist residency programme following the themes of Water – Meadow – Wood.

Artists are working with participants to co-create artworks linked to the themes, exploring the natural and social history of the place, for seasonal exhibitions to be held in the park or visitor centre.

Through participation attendees are being taken on a voyage of discovery, stimulating imagination, enhancing creative skills, building confidence, learning about and gaining appreciation of the many aspects of Yeovil Country Park.

The project is funded by Arts Council England Grants for the Arts programme and supported by South Somerset District Council – Yeovil Country Park Team.
