Artist Opportunities

Our space

We have a building and some technical facilities, a small staff team and a pool of enthusiastic and knowledgable volunteers plus a huge ambition to ensure this venue is open, accessible and available to all who want/need it.

We are keen to discuss how this could work for the professional or emerging artist sector on the Fylde Coast whether that is 1:1 support with an idea and/or funding application, using our facilities as match-funding in an application, finding inspiration from a new network of colleagues, taking over a section of the building in a residency, trailing a project as part of some R&D activity to gain feedback or hiring our spaces to provide your own activity – we want to talk to you!
