Local creatives are invited to apply to take on the lease of two studios available at ArtHouse Jersey's new site at Grève de Lecq Barracks, where the charity hopes to create a cultural campus.
ArtHouse Jersey's vision for the site is that of an international centre for ‘art-making,’ a space for artists to be supported in the creation of new work, and an inspirational home for the local arts community.
The Barracks are already home to ‘Luddite Press,’ a collaboration between artists and printmakers Tom Parker and Tim Le Breuilly. The pair, who have installed two full size printing presses and the paraphernalia to support several printmaking practices, are setting out to share the joys of printmaking with the wider community.
They are also planning a programme of workshops and classes as well as a membership scheme for practicing artists already competent with the equipment.

ArtHouse Jersey has two other studios available for artists and creatives who want to develop their work and be part of the new cultural campus.
Those who are interested in joining the 'campus' and helping ArtHouse Jersey's vision come to life are invited to apply, setting out why they want a studio, how frequently they would use it and how. Artists and creatives are also invited to share examples of their work as well as ideas of how they would engage with the public.

The tenants would be expected to share expertise with the visiting artists ArtHouse Jersey regularly welcomes to the island as part of its residency scheme, providing opportunities for the local community to engage with and benefit from highly-skilled, practicing artists.
Artists working in any discipline are welcome to apply for a studio space before Friday 29 November.
