Opportunities for creative ambition

At Quay Arts we see ourselves as facilitators of creative ambition and offer lots of 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 like our very popular Acoustic Originals sessions;
  • we provide Artist Network Evenings to bring key 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

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


Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight?

However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
