The step from student to career artist is difficult and vital studio space expensive to rent. At the same time, Cheltenham's contemporary art scene is starting to take off. We want to marry the two by providing cheap and accessible studio and project space to new artists keen to develop a career while being based in Cheltenham. We want to make Cheltenham a contemporary arts hub and will work with the other arts groups in the area to make this happen. Nau is being set up as a non profit making organization with any surplus made being reinvested in our goals of supporting and developing emerging artists. We want to engage the Cheltenham community at all levels by being approachable, accessible and welcoming. Nau Arts will focus on projects and themes that include the community and build relationships with the artists we support.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Backers will be involved in the beginning of what we hope will become a contemporary arts hub for Cheltenham. You will get to meet the artists, see them work and buy their pieces direct. If want to make it easier for artists to break into what can be a closed and privileged industry then sign up now. If you want to come to great shows and cool events then sign up now. If you love art at ALL then sign up now!
Steps to get it done:
A future in arts is often a second chance for those who have already had careers or have faced challenges along the way. Nau Arts wants to remove some of the financial barriers to those starting out and in the process share some wonderful art with the Cheltenham community.
