The Artist Project Space

An artist-led incubator space for ideas, collaboration and peer support.

The Artist Project Space was created to address post-academic isolation in 2017. Since then, it has become an exciting platform for a rigorous art critique, for a continued professional development as well as a sounding-board for developing ideas and works-in-progess. Our aim for participating artists is to help progress their art practice on a peer-to-peer level and provide opportunities to seek out budding collaborations, exhibitions and create micro-residencies and bursaries for the group members, in a thriving, stimulating, trusting and safe environment. 
90% of our core artists hold a post-graduate qualification. An MA is not a requirement though; commitment to a progressive art practice is.
