Welcome to Green Hill Arts
Green Hill is an award-winning dedicated arts and history venue on the edge of Dartmoor.
Within the refurbished and attractive Victorian schoolhouse there is a stunning contemporary art gallery also selling arts and crafts in the foyer, an heritage centre with displays and archive, a number of purpose-built artist’s studios, a large dedicated youth centre and offices.
Green Hill attracts visitors from far and wide to enjoy a programme that nourishes the arts and crafts community of Dartmoor.
Our current exhibition is a collaboration between Green Hill Heritage, MED Theatre and Moretonhampstead History Society who have mentored young people to interpret how World War One affected people on Dartmoor. The exhibition shares people’s personal sometimes heart-rending stories directly affected by the Great War. It includes photographs, films and audio, showcasing material that the young people have been researching and creating from over the last year. Go to the exhibition pages to find out more.
