New Art Spaces: Pop-up creative spaces for emerging talent in the North West

Castlefield Gallery’s vision is for the North West to be a place where artists can live and produce work while presenting their work in national and international contexts. Its mission is to nurture talent, explore cultural trends and deepen our audience’s relationship to contemporary art.

As a visual art venue and artist development agency, CG has been actively involved with brokering ‘pop-up’ project and gallery spaces for artists, piloted with Urban Splash in Manchester City Centre, including a large-scale art exhibition at Will Alsop’s Chips building in Ancoats to coincide with Manchester International Festival in 2009. Since then, CG has been aware of many more emerging artists, artist and performance groups, musicians and creative practitioners who can also benefit from short-term use of spaces to develop their art, rehearse and test out new work with audiences.

New Art Spaces provides pop-up spaces for artists in which to develop their creative practice at very low cost.

Each New Art Space is accessible to CG Associates, a membership initiative with a host of benefits for artists. These temporary project and exhibition spaces are available for short-term use, with a maximum project time of six months.
