SaltSpace is a 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.
In 2019 we were provided with three previously vacant shop units within the Saltmarket area through Glasgow City Property’s, ‘Space for Growth’ initiative. We had a Gallery space hosting exhibitions, a Community space which was a workshop space and a Makers Space which hosted a collection of studios rented out by members.
We previously sat in the historically rich High Street and Saltmarket area which was once a significant part of Glasgow that fell into dereliction as the 20th century progressed. SaltSpace aimed to highlight the historical importance, aiding in its revitalisation.
We have recently moved out of our High St. gallery premsises at the end of 2022 and moved out of our community/cinema space and makers space in the Saltmarket area in the summer of 2022. This was a phased transition into to finding a bigger space which could house all of SaltSpace's activities under the one roof.
We have now moved into a bigger space at the Axiom Building located in central Glasgow along the River Clyde, 5 minutes from Anderston station. We have divided this beautiful space into a gallery, studios and cinema space!
Gallery Space – A space for members to exhibit their work in the form of a solo show or group exhibition, work can encompass a range of themes and concepts.
SaltSpace currently has three spaces, each with a dedicated purpose:
