The IMOS Foundation believes that art improves lives, offers direction and brings joy. It hopes to improve the human and urban environment with its art projects, providing national and international level attractions on the Romney Marsh. It aims to offer an education in the arts, to allow gifted and as yet undiscovered artists to display their work in public, to show what can be achieved with not much but an ambitious vision.

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

The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust has made several donations to IMOS projects including the sculptures at the Hope All Saints site; the tapestry of Romney Marsh, Romney Marsh Murals; European Portraits and the Still Lives of Europe.
