Centre of Gravity was established in 2018 to bring to a point of focus the component parts of this multi-­‐faceted visual arts sector and to showcase their work. To this end, we have been working with First Base, developers of the former Soapworks factory complex in the city centre, to gain temporary access to their vast Victorian warehouse, prior to its imminent redevelopment.

We believe that now is the time to explore alternative approaches to facilitate what artists do best – create new work, express ideas and discover new innovative ways to engage with the public. We seek to look beyond conventional arenas of arts support to create a forum within which we can open channels of communication, pool experience, exploit opportunities, cultivate alliances and promote a unity of purpose.
