Support & Opportunities

As well as providing affordable studio space, we combine support for artists and makers with meaningful opportunities for community engagement, often working in partnership with local organisations and businesses, schools, colleges and universities.

Our residency and microgrant opportunities focus on placing artists in the heart of communities, particularly neighbourhoods that are known to have low take-up of the city's cultural offer. We’ve been involved in engaging people of all ages with art and artists for over 25 years.

We also provide opportunities for creative professional development via our Starter Studio programmes and our Training Bursary, which is delivered in partnership with The Design Trust.
