The Rubbish Art Project is a Community Benefit Society (not for profit organisation). The aim of the project is to regenerate the town of Shepton Mallet, provide a nurturing hub and creative platform for the community. The building is a former HSBC bank on the high street. Since April 2018 we have been developing an inclusive space to support people’s mental wellbeing. We have a range of workshops that take place in the bank and online. They are affordable and aimed at unlocking peoples creativity and supporting mental health and well being.
The Art Bank also operates as a vegetarian and vegan cafe Wednesday to Saturday and bar Thursday to Saturday serving food with a range of live music, open mics, theatre, comedy and special events.
