Weston Artspace is a place for Weston-super-Mare’s creative community to meet, work, develop skills and share ideas.
From speaking to local artists and organisers, we learned that there was a real problem in Weston with lack of affordable, accessible space for people to gather, make a mess or make some noise. So we worked with North Somerset Council to open a free studio as a pilot – to demonstrate the appetite for this kind of space. We’re now supporting local artists to take on the management of Weston Artspace moving forwards.
Downstairs is a flexible space where artists can host events, workshops, rehearsals and meetings. Upstairs is shared studios for anyone to use for their own work. So far, we have more than 60 writers, photographers, painters, designers, theatre artists, musicians and producers signed up to use the space. Anyone is welcome to become a member – it’s free for Weston-based artists.
