We're looking for new gallery space!
Following the success of The Kickplate Gallery that we set up in the Abertillery last year, and having handed it over to new managers, we would like to continue our non-profit project of bringing art to the Valleys.
We think it’s very important to encourage more people to visit exhibitions, to reach people who otherwise might not be able to travel to big cities, to show that art is not limited to one social group and that everyone can enjoy it and create it. We’d also like to encourage people from bigger cities to visit smaller towns and appreciate art initiatives happening there.
Our plan for now is to set up two more photo galleries next year and we are looking for private landlords who could rent us their space for 5 months at a time in Bargoed and Risca. We’d like to get in touch with private landlords as we believe it’d be more beneficiary for the local communities than agencies.
An optimal space would be a single shop unit in the town centre, preferably by the high street. If you’re interested in renting your space to an art project, or know someone who might, contact us via email at thekickplateproject(at)gmail.com or Facebook: The Kickplate Project.
