The Seed and the Pod bears fruit

Our new SeedPod program has started a buzz of ideas and if you’ve got one you’d like to bring to fruition then you’d better get in and see us soon! SeedPod offers support for artists to work with communities on creative projects and provides grants comprising cash, in-kind support and skills development workshops.

The closing date for SeedPod grant applications is Monday 7th March

And while you’re in here, take the opportunity to check out these beauties:

PodSpace – our Artist-Run Gallery – has a new exhibition approximately every 3-4 weeks. These are exciting new journeys in Art by emerging artists…… tomorrow’s “old masters” perhaps? Be prepared to be surprised, delighted, challenged, provoked or …?! You decide. The Gallery is open; Wed – Sat 12noon – 5pm with opening nights the first Thursday of each exhibition, 6-8pm and it’s FREE.

Our Zine Library – did you know it is a nationally significant collection? You can read more about these at our website: www.octapod.org
