MEMBERSHIP OF THE SOCIETY
The Society of Badenoch and Strathspey Artists (SBSA) was founded 25 years ago. The Society is a membership organisation and became a company limited by guarantee in 2010 andIN 2016 achieved charitable status.
The Society's aims are to encourage and promote enjoyment of the arts, heritage and culture, by
holding exhibitions open to the general public and the local community;
encouraging the work of individual artists locally and nationally;
supporting the artistic development of members;
arranging workshops, training and community based project activities;
working alongside schools to encourage young people to take an interest in the arts, heritage and culture;
cooperating and associating with other arts societies, organisations and similar bodies in the charitable purposes of the Company.
Membership is open to anyone who shares these aims
The current membership of more than 80 includes a good cross-section of artists who are professionally trained and qualified, those who have attended shorter courses or perhaps are self-trained, members who might still regard themselves as novices, as well as those who are just interested in the visual arts and wish to support the work of local artists. Collectively the Society demonstrates the wealth of talent that can be found in the area.
MEMBERSHIP IS OPEN TO ALL WHO SUPPORT THESE AIMS
Membership costs just £10 per year, but to enjoy the full benefits including discount on gallery hire, must be paid by the AGM each year. Membership is entirely free for under 18's
For those who do not wish to be involved in any of the Society's activiies, there is a 'Friends' option at just £5 per year, though this does not confer voting rights.
