Drawing Projects UK

Drawing Projects UK develops, organises and promotes projects that provide opportunities to gain knowledge and understanding of drawing in the UK. In 2015, with an expanded remit, a new centre for the research and development of drawing and contemporary art was established at Bridge House in Trowbridge. A former benefit society built in 1929, Bridge House is a landmark building adjacent to Trowbridge station. It houses the drawing centre project space and training room, meeting rooms, offices and workspaces for artists and creative enterprises, and a café. Programmes include exhibitions, workshops and seminars for a range of visitors, and mentoring and professional development for artists and curators.
