In a rural farmhouse Arthur is struggling to care for his wife Edie. Their son Stephen thinks selling the family home and putting his mother into care is the best solution. When a young stranger with blue hair arrives to care for Edie as she descends deeper into dementia, the family are forced to ask: are we living the way we wanted? A haunting and beautiful exploration of the way our lives slip past us.

Black Country Arts Council

Important: Change of Name 

On the 1st October 2016 Dudley Arts Council gained permission from the Charity Commission to change its name to the :- 

Black Country Arts Council 

Over the last six years more and more of our members have come from across the Black Country and beyond.

At an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of the Council held on the 14th September 2016 the members present voted overwhelmingly to proceed with the change of name which has now been approved by the Charity Commission.

Our Charity number remains the same and access to our website also remains the same for all members and membership organisations.     

Dudley Arts Council, now called the Black Country Arts Council,  is a charitable organisation which has been in existence for over 70 years.

The organisation is run by a Committee of Trustees and volunteers with the aim of ...

"... encouraging involvement in and an appreciation of the arts and to raise awareness of arts organisations based in the Dudley borough, the Black Country and the West Midlands."

Over the coming weeks and months the Trustees will be applying for funding to expand our activities and reach out further across the Black Country and beyond. 

These are exciting times for the Trustees and the organisation so please consider joining us by completing our online application. It's totally free and your application will be processed as soon as possible. 

Thank you for visiting our website and hope you will join with us as we grow and develop over the coming years.
