Emerging Artist Programme

Emerging Artist Programme

Flax Art Studios was given the opportunity to take over 7 North Street for 18 months in August 2021. Understanding the difficulties and loss of opportunities recent graduates and emerging artists faced as a result of the pandemic, we decided to dedicate this space to support these artists.

We moved the 11 artists from the Emerging Artist Hub in Havelock House while able to provide further space for 29 artists and makers. We finished the intended 18-month programme in February 2023 and secured another contract until July 2024.

What we provide:

Four floors of shared studio spaces to accommodate up to 40 recent graduate and emerging artists with a ground floor project space.

Exhibition and mentoring opportunities.

Access to our workshop facilities Including digital fabrication technology, wood workshop, casting/plaster room, fabrication area, and ceramics.

What we are looking for:

Artists who are in the early stages of their career and who demonstrate a passion for contemporary visual art. We are also open to considering providing space for different types of creatives who have recently graduated within this programme.

Cost ÂŁ60 per month.
