St Mark’s Cultural Association was founded in early 2013 as a platform where music, words and art would create lasting relationships across cultures and communities in Florence and beyond.
It seeks to promote three areas of human endeavour (and therefore, human meeting and connection), namely, music, art and literature, as part of our Church’s Mission. Through the Association, a writing group called Florence Writers was set up to promote and encourage writers in the city, and provide forum where writers and book lovers could meet.
If you would like to know more about our Cultural Programme or the Association itself, or indeed, would like to lead a workshop, launch a book or give a presentation/concert/reading, then please see our online Calendar or get in touch with our Administrator. Our Programme is also advertised on St Mark’s and Florence Writers Facebook pages.
As an Association, we are also extremely grateful to the Comune and City of Florence for their patronage (Patrocinio).
St Mark’s receives no financial support from the Church of England, or from local or national Governments. We reply entirely on the generosity of those who use our premises or benefit from our ministry. Such donations are vital to our continued outreach and ministry, as well as cultural events, here in Florence and beyond. Thank you.
