These spaces are made available to other charities, registered community organisations and social enterprises for temporary, pop-up projects.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">You’re probably wondering how we can do this? We’re funded by landlords, who benefit from having a charity use the space. The only ‘catch’ is that the properties remain on the market, which means that if a commercial tenant is found, we have to leave. This can be in as little as 7 days, but we’ve been using some properties for over a year!</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">We currently have spaces available in a range of locations across the UK – explore this site to find out more about how we work, and see how other organisations have used our spaces successfully.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">3Space are proud to be included in the list of <a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/theobserver/series/britain-s-new-radicals" target="_blank">‘Britain’s 50 New Radicals’</a> 2012, as chosen by NESTA and </span><em><span style="font-size: small;">The Observer.</span> <br /></em></p> Wed, 23 May 2012 05:38:04 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list Ambika P3, University of Westminster, 35 Marylebone Road, London NW1 5LS, United Kingdom <p style="text-align: justify;">Ambika P3, formerly known as P3, is a 14,000 square foot triple height subterranean space in central London, converted from the vast former concrete construction hall for the University of Westminster’s School of Engineering.

Beaconsfield Commissions solicits new work from visual artists at all stages of their careers, working in any discipline. Beaconsfield Research assists artists in developing their ideas, offering a public platform for work in progress with an emphasis on experiment. Society is an intimate members club which hosts a variety of critical and social arts activities and Mother of all Parties is an interdisciplinary, occasional event on a larger scale. Beaconsfield editions and imprints are published on a project specific basis.<br /><br />Beaconsfield recognises its responsibilities as a promoter and facilitator of the arts, which are a potent channel of communication. The charity aims to reflect the diversity of London and the large number of communities that make up the Borough of Lambeth and to represent a variety of cultural positions. Beaconsfield believes that the arts should be a guardian of free speech, diversity of expression and democracy. It regards its work as contributing to this principle. The charity's artistic policy promotes dialogue locally, nationally and internationally and seeks to contribute to social and cultural integration.<br /><br />Beaconsfield believes that sustainable energy and global parity is of utmost importance; recycles its waste, works on recycled paper, runs a caf&eacute; selling Fairtrade products and is probably the first and only arts organisation in London to be powered by 100% green electricity.</p> <p><input id="gwProxy" type="hidden" /><input id="jsProxy" onclick="jsCall();" type="hidden" /></p> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div> Wed, 16 Apr 2014 16:21:21 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list Calvert 22, 22 Calvert Avenue, London E2 7JP, United Kingdom <p style="text-align: justify;">Calvert 22 is the first London-based, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting contemporary art from Russia and Eastern Europe.

It provides a showcase exhibiting space for the alumni and staff of Chelsea College of Art and Design set within St James’ <em>Grosvenor Waterside</em> development at Chelsea Bridge.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Chelsea Futurespace exhibitions have included internationally esteemed artists alongside emerging talents associated with Chelsea College of Art and Design and have been favourably reviewed in journals such as Blueprint magazine and Time Out, amongst others. Exhibitions have also included major new projects such as Layla Curtis’s <em>Traceurs</em> commissioned by Westminster City Council in association with Futurecity and shown as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2008 - a superb example of an arts institution, an arts consultancy, a property developer, a city council, and an artist working seamlessly together. This partnership, as well as the artwork produced, is of cultural significance.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Chelsea Futurespace is part of Futurecity’s, ‘cultural strategy’ for this prestigious residential development which also includes a permanent public work by Richard Wilson and artist Clare Wood’s etched metal facades for two buildings by Ken Shuttleworth’s MAKE architects - possibly the largest artwork in London. This cultural strategy was approved by Westminster City Council as part of the Section 106 planning consent for the Grosvenor Waterside Development.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>“Chelsea Futurespace represents a unique partnership between St James Urban Living, the arts consultancy Futurecity, and an internationally renowned art school - a showcase exhibition space for the alumni of Chelsea College of Art and Design based within the Grosvenor Waterside development. Together we have created a new cultural space for London, and have designed an important and hugely popular changing exhibition programme open to the widest possible public audiences. This also creates a talking point for the Grosvenor Waterside residents and cultural cachet for their property. Together we have produced a credible and exciting project which is highly regarded by planners and architects as well as arts connoisseurs”.</em></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Donald Smith, Director of Exhibitions, CHELSEA space and Chelsea Futurespace.</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Mark Davy, Director, Futurecity.</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Paul Pritchard, Operations Director, St James Urban Living.</span></p> Wed, 03 Oct 2012 14:33:46 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list Fitzrovia Community Centre, John Astor House, Foley Street, London W1W 6DN , United Kingdom Sat, 12 May 2012 07:58:48 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list Frieze London, Regent's Park, London, United Kingdom <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: medium;">Frieze Art Fair takes place every October in Regent&rsquo;s Park, London.

Nine studios are rented to London-based artists and three are reserved for an International Residency Programme for non-UK based artists. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Gasworks hosts up to twelve residencies a year, encouraging the exchange of ideas between international and local practitioners. The non-prescriptive and process-based nature of the residencies allows visiting artists to develop projects in response to their new context, or to conduct research benefiting from London&rsquo;s resources. As a result, residencies generally culminate in an Open Studio. The residencies programme is also accompanied by activities such as talks and seminars, aiming to introduce the general public to international artists and their practice.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> The exhibition&rsquo;s space accommodates six main projects a year, as well as a series of small-scale events. The programme includes solo and thematic exhibitions, a yearly open submission project, screenings, workshops, seminars and guest-curated events. Gasworks focuses on visual arts practice in its broadest sense, including design, documentary filmmaking and media art, amongst other areas of activity. These are all linked by a commitment to constantly reassess the position of artistic practices within their wider cultural, social and political frameworks. </span><br /><span style="font-size: small;">The residencies and exhibitions programmes regularly cooperate, often to facilitate research and production for international artists invited to develop a project for the exhibitions and events programme. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Gasworks runs an education and outreach programme which responds, as well as operates independently from, the residencies and exhibitions. The programme aims to instigate dialogue and exchange through art, and to work with local groups and organisations to widen access to contemporary art.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Gasworks is part of Triangle Arts Trust, an international network of artists and organisations set up in 1982 whose activities include residencies and workshops. The Trust provides Gasworks with unique connections to artists and organisations in more than thirty countries around the world. Each year, through the Arts Council England&rsquo;s International Artists Fellowship Programme, Gasworks organises residencies for six to eight UK-based artists in one of the Triangle partners' organisations, in countries including Cuba, China, South Africa, Kenya and India.</span> </span></p> Tue, 11 Mar 2014 14:26:57 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Venues/list Ham House and Garden, Ham Street, Richmond upon Thames, London TW10 7RS, United Kingdom <h2 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">A unique 17th-century treasure trove</span></h2> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">One of a series of grand houses and palaces alongside the River Thames, Ham House and Garden impressed in its day and continues to do so today.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Rich in history and atmosphere, it is mainly the vision of Elizabeth Murray, Countess of Dysart, who was deeply embroiled in the politics of the English Civil war and subsequent restoration of the monarchy.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Through the centuries Ham has survived war, fashion and neglect to retain a uniquely mysterious aura.
