Overview

Galaxy Art Studios is a not-for-profit group looking to open affordable studios for disabled and low income artists.

Hello! We are A4 Studios; a not-for-profit group set up by 4 creatives from different backgrounds.

We are making affordable studio space for creatives in the North West area of the U.K, with a main goal to provide spaces for artists with disabilities and those on low incomes.

We want to become the Arts disability hub of the North-West with the best contemporary gallery in the area, offering opportunities for emerging and early career artists.

But we need your help! Affordable studio space with full disabled access is very hard to find, so with this in mind we have sourced a suitable building with fantastic transport links. We have drawn up a floor plan and developed a sustainable 5 year business plan.

Now we need your help to make this happen. this Kickstarter is for phase 1 of a 4 phase project that is being funded through private investment, grant assistance and donations, and you guys can play a vital role in making this project happen

Our building is of local historical interest and is in desperate need of renovation. Your donations will help us secure the building and start the necessary renovation works to restore the building and redevelop the internal space to create the disabled access studios and create the space needed for public use.

Our plans include larger than average studios, disability toilets and to ensure all entrances, corridors and studios are wheelchair accessible.

Your donations will put us well on our way creating 27 studios (21 of which are wheelchair accessible), 2 fully accessible galleries spaces and 1 large creative space which can be used for performances, large scale installations and events.

This project will allow us to set up a rolling programme of exhibitions, a series of monthly workshops and to host open studio events throughout the year.

Our workshops would be catered for everyone in the community but we will also have art therapy workshops aimed at socially isolated individuals and those with disabilities to improve on health and well-being. We would also host platforms for emerging local talents to perform their craft to increase confidence and personal development.

This type of facility is sorely needed; with studio closures happening across Manchester, an increase of students studying art, on top of this there are a very limited number of facilities that provide for the disabled. We will be one of the only venues in the North West that provide for the growing need of accessible space but we cannot do it without you!

We are hugely thankful for any help you can give to help us achieve our goal and you would be helping us bring a much needed service to both artists and the wider community.
