Our Mission

SPACE is founded on the belief that enjoyment of and access to arts and creative processes are intrinsic to the development of a healthy and dynamic culture.

Our mission is to provide the space, resources and opportunities for people to create art, for people to engage with art and for people to develop their creative potential. By providing affordable studio space, we support artists throughout their careers. We complement this with an arts and education programme of exhibitions, events, neighbourhood-based learning and participation projects and training for both young people and professional artists. Our activities support the growth of individuals, encourage ownership of creativity and nurture a creative society.


SPACE is committed to sustainability in all senses – environmental, economic and social – read SPACE’s environmental policy here.
