Under its founder and Creative Director Briony Kapoor,  the charitable arts organisation IMOS Foundation has established a range of visual arts projects in New Romney and other communities around the Romney Marsh. Its work includes site specific murals that reflect life on the Marsh, sculptures, and photography, and has helped to reinforce and build on the area’s reputation for artistic inspiration, and has enlivened the environment for local people and visitors.

The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust has made several donations to IMOS projects, including support for “Europe Now”, a series of oil portraits that depict individuals from each of the 28 EU member states, first exhibited to coincide  with the Folkestone Triennial in 2014, then touring European countries, with plans for a permanent home in New Romney.
