[Artists] inform everything we do.
An independent charity, we are committed to providing a platform tosupport [artists] and profile what they do. Through a determination to create the space [artists] need, our programme comprises a range of activities:
  • Reflecting the [artists’] voice is integral to emerging developments in contemporary art, across assorted contexts. We present new aspects and forms of artistic expression to local, national and international audiences.
  • Supporting [artists]:  insurance, networks, space, opportunities, R&D awards, profiling, advice, mentoring - enabling [artists] to be [artists][Artists] blur the boundaries and we adapt and change with their evolution, seeking to provide the best support we can.
As a small team of [artists], curators, producers and writers, having dialogue with our members is critical.
Members influence and inform all our activities and developments. By shiftingfrom the gallery-led system of spectatorship to one that begins with the[artist], we create the opportunity to support a more widely engaged and diverse community of [artists], commissioners and audiences.
