About Unity Arts

Unity Arts is an exciting new community arts studio in Southampton where local people can get together to share and enjoy arts and creativity.

Here you can make your mark. Tell your story.

You will find things to see, things to do, things to learn.

Our launch project is HOME PORT. Supported by locally and nationally known artists, we are inviting local people to share their memories and stories of Home and all it means to them. We will work together to create exciting ways of sharing these stories in an exhibition at Unity Arts for everyone in the community to enjoy.
