Southlands Arts Centre is managed by the Yiewsley and West Drayton Arts Council. The council has been working with the local community since the 1960’s. Yiewsley and West Drayton Arts Council achieved charity status in 2017.

“We aim to develop a programme of high-quality community and amateur art and craft engagement and learning opportunities for a wide range of audiences. These opportunities will be available for all people from all sections of the local community to take part in inspirational and creative activities of their choice and, through this, improve the quality of life of people of all abilities. To attain this, we aim to advance the education of the public in the understanding and appreciation of the arts”.
