Book a room


Co- is a collaborative creative development project that aims to provide time and space to both curators and artists within the early stages of their practice. The project brings together a group of creatives to share ideas, skills and knowledge.

The space invites artists and curators to co-exist, co-produce and create a micro community where conversation, sharing and mentoring could lead to the production of new work.

Currently: Kirsty Claxton, Simone Hesselberg & Frances Willoughby.


Inspired by Co- member Frances Willoughby

We’ve been using collage as a tool to understand each other’s practices, and as a way of working quickly and spontaneously.

Instruction: bring in 3 images of your work to share. Each person uses images from everyone except their own. Spend an hour making.
