Escape Arts Team

Escape Arts has a small but dedicated team working across Warwickshire. At the very heart of our organisation are our volunteers, who are the life blood of Escape Arts. Escape Arts currently has over 130 active volunteers who offer a whole range of support across the organisation from one-to-one project support and befriending to running events, fundraising, baking and driving.
