The Art House

Welcome to the house that art built.

The Art House provides time, space and support for artists, makers and creative businesses to develop their practice. It is a place where artists and audiences of all kinds are welcome to engage with the creative process through a year-round programme of exhibitions and events.

We manage more than 50 accessible artists studios, hosting a wide variety of artists, makers, and creative businesses. In our building, you’ll also find exhibition spaces, on-site accessible accommodation for creatives, a shop, a coffee house, meeting rooms and event spaces for hire.

Working with people from all sorts of backgrounds and specialists groups, we undertake a range of community projects. We aim to use arts, culture and the creative process to bring people together, nurture potential and contribute to the building of a cohesive community.
