Free studio hire for local artists and creatives

Culture Warrington acknowledges the challenges local artists and creative have experienced recently and would like to offer free use of our studios at the Pyramid Arts Centre to enable artists to create, rehearse, test, and collaborate.

Our studios will be available on a short-term basis (max 2 weeks) and can be used for artists individual practice such as: creating new work, rehearsals, script reading, individual technique/ training, and testing your Covid safe teaching practice. All must adhere to our Covid-19 regulations and practices.

If successful the studio will be yours to use for the allocated time and will be cleaned adhering to Covid-19 measures. We request that artists are responsible for the additional cleaning of touchpoints (light switches/ door handles etc)  before and after their studio use. All artists will be requested to undertake a short health and safety visit prior to their first use/ visit.

The studios available are better suited to performing arts but there is so much possibility for visual artists to use is necessary. We will accept applications from artists living within a 15-mile radius of Warrington. All artists must have their own PL Insurance and responsible for their own health and safety when using the space. All artists must adhere to our strict Covid-19 regulations and local restrictions.
