Workplace Foundation is a charity founded by WORKPLACE a contemporary art gallery based in Gateshead, UK. Workplace Foundation supports emerging and under-represented artists with a commitment to UK art scenes outside of London, with a focus on the North of England. We are core funded by Arts Council England as part of their National Portfolio of Organisations.
Workplace Foundation recognises that more work needs to be done to support and connect the vital yet fragile communities and art scenes outside of London in the UK to an International audience. We aim to address the lack of opportunities for artists and improve the cultural landscape and social fabric of life in the UK.
Through working with a diverse community of artists outside of a commercial context, Workplace Foundation aims to cultivate a dynamic and critically aware art scene in the North of England and connect it to national and global audiences.
