Outer Spaces is a national charity with a vision for new, local, culture-led neighbourhood and community renewal.
We believe that the arts have the power to transform communities and enrich lives, and that everyone should have the right to experience and participate in the arts.
We take on vacant commercial properties on a temporary basis and use them to offer artists a unique environment where they can work in new ways and stretch their practice without any prescribed outcomes. This spirit of possibility guides our programming with artists and the cultural impact we want to have in the towns and cities where we work.
