The Artspace Lifespace Project is an artist led initiative that recycles vacant, under-used and problem properties into thriving active creative resources.
We work in partnership with building owners, property developers and the local community to secure and re-use interesting, unusual and often difficult spaces as vibrant multi-use art venues.
"As a company we have found Artspace Lifespace dedicated, passionate and hard working."

We manage the site under contract and create workshops, studio spaces, galleries, cafés, performance and training facilities, which we then make accessible to the local community. Each building we manage we aim to make sustainable and self-supporting, all funds raised through events, activities or donations from artists for use of space are channelled back into the Project.
We rely a lot on the energy and time donated by our core members and network of volunteers as well as the awareness and revenue raised from our public events and regeneration services.
