A free monthly get together for creative independents, freelancers and staff from local organisations, aiming to test ideas and build a network of creative practice.

The Old Electric aims to provide development opportunities and paid commissions for artists who live, work or study in Blackpool and on the Fylde Coast.

Artist Development

We believe in investing in artists and creative people, so our programme of artist development will aspire to meet the needs of our local community. Watch this space for information coming soon.

Community Dark Room

We’ve teamed up with a group of Blackpool based photographers to create a community dark room for the town. Watch this space for more information coming soon.
