There are six interlinked strands that define Fabrica’s activity.
We show three – four exhibitions a year, either new commissions for mid-career artists or completely reconfigured works by artists of international renown.
Learning and Education
As an Arts Award supporter, Fabrica has been working in partnership with local schools, community and creative organisations to help young people achieve their Arts Awards and encouraging their development of a personal sense of creativity, critical thinking and self-confidence. Fabrica‘s Artsmark School offers a range of bespoke workshops, tours, film screenings and introductory talks designed to engage young people in the arts and develop creativity.
Taking a partnership-based approach by collaborating with artist support organisations to create opportunities support a broad base of artists based in the South East. Each year Fabrica provides three Making Space and two paid artists residencies. The In Between Gallery is an opportunity for mid career level contemporary photographers to display work in our large picture window in the centre of the city.
Volunteer and Work Placement Schemes
Volunteers are an integral part of Fabrica’s team. Volunteers support us in the day to day running of the organisation, particularly in front of house but we believe that volunteers also bring their own skills, experience, interests and personality to Fabrica and by so doing impact the organisation.
Fabrica is a unique venue for hire. An unusual and relaxed space in a fantastic central location, Fabrica combines unexpected delights with traditional characteristics. The venue is perfect for weddings, corporate events, Christmas parties and more.
Film at Fabrica
Beyond commissioning new film work for the exhibition programme, Fabrica provide a year-round programme that profiles and develops new creative talent.
