Back Lane West
BACK LANE WEST (BLW) is a non-profit, artist-led residency, project, and meeting space in Redruth, Cornwall. Its aims are to support critically engaged visual art practice and artists' professional development. Central to this is the commitment to develop regional, national, and international networks of exchange, discussion, and opportunity, and contribute to the building of a nationally and internationally connected, contemporary visual art community in the South West.
Established in 2009, BLW’s largely self-sustained project has grown into a regular programme of artists’ residencies, exchanges, exhibitions, performances, screenings, talks & discussions. We have developed links & collaborations with other artist-led groups – CINESTAR now shares our space - NPOs, curators, HE institutions, & community groups, regionally, nationally, & increasingly internationally.
BLW's core programme is grounded in its artists'/groups'/collaboratiors' self-funded residencies, projects and events. We therefore continue to welcome proposals - application details can be found on the BLW website.
