About Primary

We believe that artistic research is a public process, so we encourage participation in artistic production. We’ve established an engaged and outward-looking community which supports artists to experiment and develop their practice. We provide high quality studios and workshops for over 40 resident artists, alongside a free programme of exhibitions and events which are open to everyone, and we’re home to an ever-growing garden and the award-winning Small Food Bakery. We’ve transformed a disused school in an inner-city area of Nottingham into a new cultural resource, supported by Nottingham City Council, Arts Council England, and a range of trusts and foundations.
