Haarlem Artspace will be opening in May 2017 and we are looking for contemporary artists and creative practitioners to be part of our exciting venture!
There are both studios and co-working desk spaces available.
Haarlem Artspace is an ever-evolving creative space and community, and a place for experimentation. We have a flexible structure and we aim to encourage and support dialogue and collaboration between our studio holders and forge links with like-minded organizations both nationally and internationally.
We are situated in the historic market town of Wirksworth, (Derbyshire). The space will offer dedicated studios and co-working spaces for creative practitioners in the inspiring and historic Grade II* listed Haarlem Mill building. There will also be a flexible public space that will present an engaging and ambitious program of events and activities. The juxtaposition of contemporary practice against a rural landscape offers a new and exciting platform for artists to work, exhibit and collaborate.
Haarlem Mill was built in 1780 by Sir Richard Arkwright and is recognised as the first significant coal powered mill during the industrial revolution. The mill was originally a cotton mill and has some historic literary links that include; George Elliot, D.H Lawrence, Daniel Defoe, Olive Schreiner, Eleanor Marx and Friedrich Engels.
