Using Victoria Baths
VB Arts has a busy programme including activites, events and exhibitions running throughout the year. Much of the work is artist-led; where artists approach us with a proposal to use the building. We support artists to develop their projects.
We welcome proposals from Artists, Artist Groups, organisations and arts students who would like to make use of the building for their work. Past uses have included research projects, performance, theatre, experimental work, exhibitions and site related installations.
VB Arts offers commissions on an occasional basis, aimed at offering an opportunity to develop new ways of working and responding to the context of the building. We are particularly keen to work with artists whose work explores the locality and surrounding communities.
We want artists to be inspired and to benefit from access to this unique space and bring innovative art practices to new audiences.
