Exhibition and Project Spaces

Arts SU aims to provide a safe and supportive environment that enriches the student experience and allows for students to learn and develop their creative practice and career.

 

The Arts SU Exhibition & Project Spaces provide opportunities for students to exhibit their work across the UAL colleges. We have regular open calls for students to apply with exhibition ideas, events, workshop proposals, performances, research-led projects, screenings and other experimental ideas.

Applications are now open for 2024! The deadline is Sunday 3rd December, Midnight. 

Apply Now!

Opportunity Overview!

We are looking for proposals from students across UAL to stage an exhibition or try out a project idea in one of Arts SU’s gallery spaces. The three spaces we have to offer students are situated at Camberwell College of Art (Peckham Road), Central Saint Martins (Granary Square), and London College of Communication (Elephant & Castle).

Arts SU aims to provide a safe and supportive environment that enriches the student experience and allows for students to learn and develop their creative practice and career. The Gallery Spaces feed into this mission by providing free and open spaces for all current students to host projects, learn, create and collaborate.

Arts SU recognises that for many students, this will be the first time presenting work or accessing a gallery space. To empower students to make the most of the spaces, Arts SU will provide inductions and learning resources to give students the confidence and skills they need to help realise their projects. We will also provide technician and curatorial support, some financial support, a private view and professional development opportunities.

Who are we looking to support?

This opportunity is for all UAL students across all courses and colleges. Any UAL student is welcome to apply to any of the three spaces, you do not need to be a student at the particular college of the space you are applying to.

We welcome solo or group shows, installation ideas, performances, research-led projects, screenings, workshop proposals and events. The project proposal does not need to be fully formed, we welcome works in progress and experimental ideas.

So! To our students, take over and own your gallery spaces. These are your spaces, and we cannot wait to see what you do with them!
