Ainslie + Gorman Arts Centres provide studio space for local and visiting artists to pursue their creative work as residents. From violinmakers and digital publishers, choreographers and goldsmiths, to sound producers and writers, conductors, painters and festival curators – the range and quality of artists and arts professionals working at our Centres is impressive. Ainslie and Gorman are also home to local arts organisations, who, as residents, use the Centres as a space for their offices, performance and exhibition venues.
