The Gallery

THE GALLERY at Blackpool School of Arts inspires audiences through an ambitious and varied year-round exhibition programme that supports the ethos of the School’s creative community of practice and its three pillars - Community; Connectivity and Process:

Process - Creative thinking from inception to completion. Exploration and application of practical skills and various media.

Connectivity - Creative connections networking; physical; environmental; industrial and spiritual connections; global interdependency and sustainability.

Community - Building creative communities of practice; local; national; international; virtual and physical communities to support, inspire and live well.

The Gallery is open to receiving exhibition proposals from artists, art collectives and curators. We welcome artists from any stage of their career to share their ideas with us and help influence the next generation of creative practitioners; our students.
