We offer annual memberships to emerging artists

across the whole of Scotland!


Membership is open to Scottish students, artists based in Scotland and any artists that have studied at a Scottish institution. We have memberships allowing members to rent our spaces.

We have an annual turnover from Sep - Aug. We currently have a membership deal on where May, June, July and August sign ups are valid up until August 2024! 

As we are a non-profit co-operative we do rely on contributions to help meet our running costs. All funds from membership goes straight back into helping us run our co-operative. We hope this opportunity of a mutual relationship through membership will offer both artists and us as an organisation a beneficial relationship during precarious times!
