AirSpace Curriculum is a programme of events, talks and workshops organised by AirSpace Gallery in partnership with Staffordshire University which recognises and responds to the need for continuing professional development for artists in Stoke-on-Trent and the West Midlands.
The first part of the Curriculum offer is a series of artists’ talks, organised by Staffordshire University and usually available solely to students on their Fine Art BA Course, but now being opened up for any interested artists and members of the public to attend. This offer will be augmented by additional artist talks at AirSpace Gallery.
The programme offers an insight into the professional practices of a number of interesting and varied professional artists and arts practitioners.
Please note - For talks held at Staffordshire University, booking is essential for non-University attendees. For booking information please visit the Curriculum page at www.airspacegallery.org
