Spaces currently available listed below

We offer temporary studios and project space to artists working across a wide range of disciplines. By offering spaces free of charge, on a first come first serve basis and without any prescribed outcomes, artists are able to test new ways of working, expand their practice and foster new collaborations.


Our Spaces

We currently occupy spaces in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Greenock, Inverness, Kilmarnock, Motherwell, Newton Mearns and Perth. Most of these spaces are full and have a waiting list, however, we are always looking for new vacant properties. Those on the waiting list will always be prioritised for new spaces. If you're looking for a place to research, make or share work please sign up to our waiting list to hear about the latest opportunities and spaces near you.
