TAAG CIO - Teignmouth Arts Action Group

TAAG is a char­i­ty-oper­at­ed Gallery and Arts & Well-being Hub which is used by over 30 local organ­i­sa­tions for the ben­e­fit of the community

Teignmouth Arts Action Group (TAAG) is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CC reg no 1188013).

TAAG was originally formed to improve communication between artists and art organisations, and to facilitate arts in the Teignmouth area. Over a period of ten years it has developed into a community hub and has attracted other arts-related businesses to the area, which is now designated as Teignmouth's Arts Quarter.

Our Arts and Community Centre is normally used by over 30 organisations for activities which include: arts & craft workshops, Teignvironment, carers’ workshops, Devon Learning Recovery NHS workshops, multicultural festivals, Devon Open Studios, TRAIL recycled art, language classes, book clubs, lantern making and more. Our two galleries host weekly exhibitions by amateur and professional artists.

In 2020 we bought the TAAG building for, and with the assistance of, the local community, and we are currently carrying out essential repair works before reopening the ground floor and resuming the provision of arts and well-being services. We then plan to apply for grant aid to redevelop the upper floors, providing a workshop and art studios, which will aid our future sustainability.

Currently the TAAG building is closed. However, since summer 2021 we have operated a programme of exhibitions in the Beachcomber on Teignmouth seafront. We expect to reopen the ground floor of our Arts & Community Centre in Northumberland Place later in 2022, once refurbishment is complete.
