10 years of no.w.here
In 2004 we rolled up a garage door in Kilburn and started to build a space for a generation of artists, writers, filmmakers, curators, and the curious to repurpose and re-imagine a space in which people could make and see new work, meet, discuss, and collaborate.
Since then hundreds of artists have been able to produce new works. We have held a space for artists working with galleries and institutions to work with film, from students just graduated through to well established artists. Thousands of people have experienced the moving image as an art form through workshops and projects run in schools, colleges, old people’s homes, on housing estates and in the streets. no.w.here has inspired dozens of artist run spaces, from Cairo to Cornwall and Colorado.
2015 is an exciting year for no.w.here as we open up a new project space adjacent to the production / studio space, and begin to build more sustainable ways in which the space and resources it holds can still be accessible to all ... whilst withstanding the onslaught of gentrification, privatisation and neoliberalism which is slowly engulfing everything around us. Keep in touch for a radically new vision for no.w.here that attempts to turn an artists’ project into a social project.
Support artist run culture! Support no.w.here!
All proceeds go to no.w.here’s 2016 programming.
