We currently support over 220 artistic practitioners and organisations in and around the wider region who form our membership, which we support in a myriad of ways. Through our membership process we try to learn about you and your own ambitions so we can tailor make our support to meet your specific needs. 

We don’t do things for you. Our aim is to help you gain the skills you want and need to achieve your chosen creative endeavour. We encourage collaborative working to help stretch and challenge your thinking. We help you formulate plans and proposals, apply for funding, organise exhibitions, create presentations, develop technical skills, build on marketing and promotion, as well as simply being here to talk ideas through. 

You need space to be creative. We offer a range of studio spaces, as well as having our own resource space available for members to use, and we are always seeking new suitable areas. We also have a range of resources available such as a pottery studio, a dark room and a laser cutter. 

We work best when the communication flows both ways. We want your comments, feedback, suggestions and project ideas, and involvement in what we do; it makes the organisation richer for everyone.
