Opportunities

The West Gallery with show installed

Opportunities for creative ambition.

Quay Arts offers many opportunities for creative people on the Island to engage with us. We regularly send out calls for artists to submit work to our Open exhibitions; we invite people to showcase their talents at spoken word and music events such as our very popular Acoustic Originals sessions; we provide Artist’ Network Evenings to bring people together to debate and discuss topics relevant to them; we open up our gallery spaces for hire by individual or groups of artists and our studio theatre for drama rehearsals, music recordings, film showings; we give young people the chance to curate exhibitions – we see ourselves as facilitators of creative ambition.

Watch this space for opportunities as they arise, connect with us on Facebook, Twitter or subscribe to our Newsletter.

Artists participating in IW Open Studios 2016 are invited to show one piece of their work (max space in gallery 1m x 1m) representing their practice, in any medium, in the West Gallery.
