The Rodd

The Trust was founded by Sidney Nolan in 1985 to create a unique setting for his artistic legacy and to provide inspiration and education across the arts. The Trust serves as a resource for the appreciation of the work and the career of its founder in addition to managing an extensive artistic programme. At all times it seeks to foster excellence and innovation in the arts through participation, exhibition and performance. Based at Nolan's former home on a 250 acre estate in the scenic Welsh Marches, the Sidney Nolan Trust is realising Nolan’s vision by establishing The Rodd as an important rural centre for the arts that is as relevant to the communities of the Welsh Marches as it is to the international community of artists and scholars. The Trust also takes its work beyond the boundaries of The Rodd and into classrooms, galleries and museums across the country and overseas. Through its learning programme, exhibitions, artist residencies, workshops, masterclasses and concerts, the Trust engages with people who have little previous experience of art, as well as with established artists wishing to push the boundaries of their work. In Nolan’s spirit, our programmes endeavour to be modern, experimental and a place where collaboration flourishes. The Trust presents a programme of exhibitions in both its gallery and the Grade II* listed 16th century manor house - former home of Sir Sidney Nolan. It owns a collection of Nolan's artworks which provide a source of inspiration for visiting artists, participants and visitors alike.
