Our Vision

We believe that art thrives in a dynamic social environment. To flourish, artists need more than just facilities or funding: they need stimulus, example and informed criticism from their peers, mentors, rivals and audiences. Communities, in turn, must be involved in a genuine conversation about how and why art is made, and interact directly with the people who make it. Our aim is to cultivate inspiring places for these creative encounters to happen.
