From our rural base we provoke questions, encourage discussion and stimulate positive advances in art practice.

Allenheads Contemporary Arts designs and delivers innovative contemporary arts projects from its base at the Old School House in Allenheads, Northumberland.

For 20+ years it has assisted both regional and international artists through their early careers and beyond by providing placement, residency and exhibition opportunities.

We author projects that often fall across diverse specialist subjects working with experts from Universities and commercial industries.
