ArtHouse Jersey are developmental producers supporting artists of all disciplines to make exciting work that connects with audiences and communities across the Island and internationally.
Our role is to give artists the freedom to be bold and focus on the work that they most strive to make, providing key ingredients at an early stage to take their very best ideas forward. This may be time and space, introductions to potential collaborators, investment, mentoring, finding partners or developing wider projects. We tailor our work to the artist or project, but whatever our role we ensure that we do everything we can to realise the vision of the artists we work with.
With our ear to the ground, we are hungry to discover and champion the voices of the future, and see the benefit in offering support at the early stages of development. Our residencies, seed-funding and facilitated experiences provide opportunities for growth for artists both within our own shores and internationally. When the artist is nurtured, the path is cleared for fresh and inspiring ideas to flourish. The outcomes of these processes enable us to build bigger projects within the community and help produce work that has the potential to reach broader audiences.
Skipton Open Studios celebrates the wealth of talented artists and makers in Jersey and is now in its ninth year. This popular Jersey event sees local artists open their studios or take up residence in unusual sites around the island. The public is invited to engage with artists, learn about their practice, and to purchase or commission work directly.
