Trebuchet x Creative Communities

Trebuchet is committed to supporting local artistic communities around the world. In 2020 we have partnered with Brent Council (2020 UK Borough of Culture) and Digswell Arts Trust to support local artistic communities.

Using our international platform in print and online we work to support a variety of local and indigenous voices.


Brent 2020 is described as “a new way of celebrating a borough and its people – a cultural journey that dives deep into who we are, where we’re from and what our futures hold.”

Trebuchet has participated in a number of local activities and has offered support and recognition to local artists via help with advice on reaching a wider audience and presenting their work despite lockdown.

The Digswell Arts Trust is an forward looking charity that has focused on artists in the early phase of their careers for over sixty years. With studios in Letchworth and Welwyn, they provide studios for approximately forty emerging artists, whom they call Fellows.

More than just a studio provider; The arts trust works to give artists space to explore and develop. The first years of an artist’s career is a challenging time when attempting to make a living from their art often seems insurmountable. As a Board Trustee, Trebuchet founder Kailas Elmer has been offering advice on how to develop the commercial aspect of artistic practice through digital communications, artist statements, and press relations.
