The  Artspace project  introduces  professional artists with specialist skills to Barrow and South Cumbrian schools and to the wider community. Working with artists from within our region, we establish sustainable creative partnerships with our local authority, the areas creative industries and institutions, providing  time and resources  to devise and deliver innovative  projects that  combine traditional art skills with digital media, performance and research.

 

 Since 2017 we have begun to explore aspects of significant sites and their role in our perception of place and history.  Working from a base at the Sir John Barrow Cottage we have established partnerships with our local authority, Ulverston Coronation Hall and Green Lane Archaeology.   "SJB3: Manners and Amusements" was  the first body of work and events to result, followed by  our "Storyfair'  project with the Sir John Barrow School,  now in its 5th year, and hosted by Furness Traditions Festival.

In 2022 our "Still Waters" project sees us exploring  landscapesocial history and memory in  Askam In Furness.

 

We are currently developing our  2023 project "Art And Minds" which will see us working in Ulverston with MIND In Furness, St Mary's Hospice and local families. 

On this site  is a full record of our  work from our first residency programme in 2013-14 to the present. 

We welcome your ideas and proposals.
