Aire Place Studios is a sustainable, affordable space for creatives who often feel excluded from the art world. We use the term ‘creative’ rather than ‘artist’ because we’re available for all creative people, and encourage networks of skill sharing.
We aim to challenge conventions, by hosting month-long exhibitions which allow artists to experiment and grow their work in front of an audience. We provide a space between ‘finished’ and ‘in-progress’, with each show having opening and closing events to encourage dialogue between the artists, space and audience.
We prioritise our community’s mental health needs; events for parents and freelancers bring people together who might ordinarily suffer from isolation, and we have a safer-space policy which we expect all users to follow – we don’t allow misogyny, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ablism or discrimination on the basis on religion.
