About Art City

Artcity is an artist-led intervention designed and delivered by the key independent creative and cultural sector organisations in Stoke-on-Trent to achieve the following aims over the next five years:

Aborum et dolorum fuga

Artists Name. May 6—May 16, 2018

To manage and deliver this programme six cultural organisations (AirSpace Gallery, B Arts, Cultural Sisters, Letting In The Light, Partners in Creative Learning and Restoke) based or operating in Stoke-On-Trent are working in partnership with Stoke City Council and Staffordshire University. We have secured a five-year commitment from The Esmee Fairbairn Foundation who are investing £450,000, and Year One commitment from Arts Council England approaching £100,000.

Our initial programme of work focuses on developing temporary arts activity within council and privately owned ‘redundant’ spaces in Stoke-On-Trent: from former collieries and ceramics factories to swimming pools and engineering works. These, for so long seen as liabilities that brand the city as one in decline and post-industrial collapse, have the potential to be a set of unique assets that can position Stoke as a centre for cultural production and create a new narrative for the city.

Our long-term aims through all Artcity activity are to increase the creative profile of the city and in doing so write a new story for Stoke that shows a way into the future.
