The space is provided for free* but there is a deposit you will pay of £100 which you will get back when you leave the space on time and good condition
In return you will use the space fully & organise some public- facing events as part of your occupation.
This could be a workshop, talk, performance or anything which supports your creative practice.
You might have a site-responsive proposal to explore the context, or simply want to mount a solo or group exhibition.
There is an average weekly flow of people on Regent Street of 186,600 (between Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus), so the visibility opportunity of this site is huge.
The ground floor is 2131sqft (198 sqm) .
Upon entry there is a front reception area created by a partition wall, leading to the main gallery space.
We are particularly interested in creatives who are able to access the space easily, cannot afford exhibition space, or would see this opportunity to test the commercial viability of their creative practice to help them reach the next stage of their career.We are committed to supporting creatives & communities most in need & will prioritise creatives who declare they are struggling – whether financially, mentally or physically.
We accept applications from all creative practitioners and we have a variety of sites coming up to host a variety of art forms. We understand application processes can be time consuming so we have restricted the answers to a maximum of 100 words.
For short term project space we have application periods of approximately 3/4 weeks. For each placement we create a short list of 5 proposals that we put forward to our selection panel that will be comprised of our trustees and a local Cultural Partner (such as a curator of a museum). The success of your application for both the short list and being selected by the panel will be based on your answers in the application form so please read the questions carefully and follow the guidelines.
The areas that we will focus on are: what you plan to use the space for, how it would develop your practice and most importantly – the public event(s). This could be an exhibition walk through, talk, performance or whatever best suits your practice. You do not need a fully formed event as we understand your work in the studio space may inform what you do but we want to see what your initial thoughts are. The objective for this is to engage local communities but also for us to show your work to a wider audience.
Lastly, in the event that you are not successful, we will keep your application on file in the case that we will have other opportunities to put you forward for. If you do not want us to keep your application on file please let us know [email protected]
We are considering applications to start from the end of October 2022 onwards.
All applications must be made online using the link below, and must be received no later than 6pm on 14th October 2022 at 6pm
