SaltSpace is a new creative co-operative based in Glasgow which aims to provide a supportive platform for new graduates and early year creatives as a stepping-stone into their artistic career.
Saltspace has three spaces, each with a dedicated purpose:
Gallery Space - A space for members to exhibit their work and/or have a Salt Gallery Residency in the adjoining beautiful studio space.
Community Space - A space available for hire and an opportunity for both members and non-members to host workshops, talks, events as well as engage with the local community and businesses.
Makers space - Functions as a maker space with 5 studio spaces for an affordable price, as well as a shop front where members can sell their work at a low commission rate.

Reading Circle On Decolonisation
“In the Autumn of 2020, members of the public and SaltSpace community gathered in an online reading circle centred on practices of decolonisation in relation to place and architecture. In each of the 6 sessions, guided by Civic Soup, participants read aloud in-turn from scripts, essays and autoethnographies. Base texts focused on the settler-colonial present and its residues in Glasgow’s built environment, refugee architectures of temporary permanence, ecofeminist perspectives on land use and cultivation, and architectural legacies of imperialism in non-Western geographies.

Pleased to say artist Connor Ross @connor1t3 is the recipient of our collab digital residency with Print Clan! 🎈Follow Connor over the next few weeks as he begins to build a digital archive of interviews/research online alongside printing in the Print Clan studio.
Connor works in detailed drawings, embossment and printing techniques creating images relating to loss and memory. With this project he hopes to explore this premise on a larger scale and combine the methodical aspects in printmaking to question the natural repetition and degradation of memory. Keep up to date with the developments of Connors project on our social media and website and go follow @printclan 💘
