The Arches Project is a self funded not for profit organisation providing a creative space for creative people. We are located under the railway arches in Digbeth, Birmingham and have been working with emerging artists of all disciplines since 2011.
Our aim is to create opportunities for emerging artists, musicians and performers, promoting the fine arts and arts of all disciplines, to gain recognition, confidence and exposure to become employable within their chosen industry.
Our work involves engaging the unemployed, identifying and developing their creative talents and providing work experience to the unemployed to improve employability. We also help those with qualifications gain employment by refreshing their skills for those who have been out of work for some time.
We are a unique and exciting space that can support you with promoting your brand, building your portfolio, increasing your social media following and connecting you with an audience on your journey to success.
We have been building social values in the arts and music sector since we started, and we have hosted a series of exhibitions, theatrical presentations, music videos, short films, concerts, dance classes, private dinners, seminars, networking events, and open mic sessions. Our space is available to hire and if you are interested please contact us.
‘Everything to Get Away is about the weird and familiar we all experience of the troubles of our emotions, I try to convey anxieties and coming to terms with memories and experience. The dreamlike nature of memories and relationships is my main focus, the familiar and juxtaposed nature of life. My art is a form of escapism and a means to get away.
My show went brilliantly it had an amazing turnout and thanks to The Arches Project staff. It was a really good turnout I met a lot of new people and artists and got a lot of advice from artists and made plenty of sales as well.
I love the space, it let me create my exhibition in the manner I want to. My next step will be exhibiting in official galleries.
My advice to other emerging artists is to have confidence in yourself which is the most important part.’ -Amaan.
