Introduce Yourself

Arts House is a curated centre for contemporary performance and interactive artforms.

Are you an artist interested in Arts House but don’t know where to start, or who to talk to? We’ve set up this form to help you introduce yourself, your ideas and your work. The Arts House creative team meets four times a year to look at these introductions and if there’s a connection to future Arts House programmes a member of the team will get in touch.

If you already know someone at Arts House, you won’t need to introduce yourself! Please feel free to email them directly with your ideas.

If you have an idea or work in development and are ready to apply for support, you may want to read the information about applying for CultureLAB.
