How do I apply to use a space?

The first step is to complete the online form below, supplying images of your work and confirming that you agree to the Terms & Conditions.

Follow the hyperlinks to download the Terms & Conditions in .pdf and .doc formats.

Your application will be reviewed by a selection panel made up of an Arts SU Sabbatical Officer, an Arts SU College 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.

When do I submit my work?

Applications are now closed for Term 1.

If you are unsuccessful please check back and re-apply later on in the academic year, applications will open again:

Term 2 – Spring Term: 01/11/2017
