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 2009 to coincide with Manchester International Festival. 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 emerging talent in the North West in which to develop their creative practice at very low cost.

These temporary project workspaces and exhibition spaces can be applied for short-term use, and for a maximum of six months.

New Art Spaces Associates membership scheme provides 12 months access for creative practitioners to use Castlefield Gallery’s pop-up spaces, on an application basis. CG Associates can also apply to use these spaces.

Terms and conditions for each New Art Space applies.
