It has been a hectic time for us this year with the Usurp Chance Tour (supported by Sound and Music) and  our focus has been on performance, live art  and creating new partnerships. Forthcoming off-site events are the Optophonic Workshop in partnership with Peak Signal to Noise, Supernormal Festival and Fort Process – see our listings below for more information.

We are continuing to raise funds for our programmes “Experiment, Reflect and Create” | “Process Performance Production” to support new work by an exciting array of experimental artists, composers, musicians, film-makers, poets and performers. Our renovatons are completed and we are endeavouring to update this site with the full documentation of our numerous activities to date. Check our listings and do look at our videos, archived projects, exhibitions and events.

Our recent 10 week creative art programme for Mind users, has been graded by Ofsted as “Excellent and Outstanding”. Our previous “Ubiquitous” contemporary art, moving image and sound programmes for the charities Mind, Mencap, Harrow Carers and Rethink inspired and enabled service users to create and experiment with new materials and concepts. We can organise and manage similar programmes for organisations and groups. Contact us for more details.
