Community Outreach & Wellbeing
We offer free artist or curator-led guided tours tailored to specific community group needs and interests. At Fresh Air Sculpture we take great care to understand and respond to the individual requirements of your group and we encourage you to discuss any concerns or sensitivities we should be aware of before a visit to the exhibition. Our guided tours aim be inclusive, accessible, sensitive, inspirational and fun.
We collaborate with groups who work with adults and young people suffering from anxiety, depression, isolation within the community, mental health issues, addiction and other long-term illnesses. We aim to support the work of fantastic organisations such as Artlift, the Nelson Trust, Root and Branch, Bridewell Organic Gardens, Scrubditch Care Farm and Churn Community Projects. We are grateful for the generous grants and donations we receive that support our mission to widen access to the arts, especially sculpture.
If you would like to discuss a visit, would like more information or to arrange a tour please contact

Self-led groups are also welcome but must be booked in advance by contacting Ana Bianchi as above.
Feedback from 2019
‘Ana was wonderful and the whole experience of the group was transforming. From people who would not have dared leave their door, they were speaking of bringing their families! It was very moving.’ ~ Artlift.
‘I would like to extend Bridewell’s thanks for our visit on the 4th July. This was a new experience for many of our gardeners (people using the mental health service), but they could not have felt more welcome. The guided tour offered by Ana was so informative and set us all up to look at the many and diverse sculptures with a fresh eye. The day has been a topic of conversation over the past week and has added new experiences to people who frequently feel marginalised.’ ~ Bridewell Organic Gardens.
