We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community.

To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.
