AirSpace Gallery offers a Graduate Residency Scheme for graduting students from BA and MA Fine Art Courses.
"I would definitely recommend the residency to other artists looking for opportunities after University. The residency offers the valuable debut solo show opportunity artists dream of as well as a supportive artist community that makes the transition from University to practicing artist positive, productive and enjoyable."
- Adam Grüning, Graduate Residency Artist 2012.
Appetite aims to get more people in Stoke-on-Trent to experience and be inspired by the arts. Appetite’s main focus is working with community groups across the area to find out ‘what the people of Stoke-on-Trent really want from the arts? Through this consultation Appetite will then identify community hubs to work with throughout the programme. These hubs will work closely with our Appetite Builders to develop new ideas, skills and experiences so people can then go on to develop their own art events for the people of Stoke-on-Trent.
