Whether it’s trying out a project on a smaller scale before making it BIG or staging your first solo or group exhibition, Arts SU has four FREE Exhibition and Project Spaces for you to use in whichever way most benefits you and your work.

The spaces are at Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Fashion (High Holborn), Central Saint Martins and London College of Communication.

The exhibition slots run for 11 days - Tuesday to the following Friday (inclusive of the weekend). This is inclusive of installation and de-installation.

UPDATE: Due to unforeseen structural issues we regret to add that our SU Exhibition & Project Space at Chelsea is not open for bookings for the foreseeable future.

Your application will be reviewed by a selection panel made up of an Arts SU Sabbatical Officer, an Arts SU Events Coordinator, the Arts SU Events and Exhibitions Coordinator and where possible a staff member from Made in Arts London.

The panel makes selections in order to showcase a representative mix of creative disciplines, levels of study and colleges attended, rather than to make critical judgements about the work submitted.
