Today I moved into my studio at Artwork Atelier. These are bespoke studios designed in collaboration with Capital Properties, Ultimate Holding Company and the renting artist/maker/producer. Each studio is unique in size, purpose and interior and exterior fittings. This brings a great variety of practice with spaces occupied by musicians, artists, ceramicists, urban landscapers and many other cultural enterprises.
The studio has many functions for the Gallery. It’s a research space; a making space; a culture lab; an office; a comfortable lunch space where conversation will take place over a delicious butty; an insight into how artists use their studios; a place to ponder about the Whitworth’s forthcoming engagement offer and really get to grips with how we want to use the Whitworth’s new Learning Studio.
This is such a great opportunity to think about the future in a fresh, original space. Watch out for future responses from fellow creative participants at No. 6 Artwork Atelier.
