Castlefield Gallery Associates is a membership scheme for artists, writers and independent creatives working in contemporary art.

The scheme provides members with information, skills, opportunities, resources, promotion and critical dialogue. Castlefield Gallery Associates acts as a hub, bringing together creative practitioners, facilitating critical exchange and engagement with members’ work and strengthening the visual arts ecology of the North West of England.
