We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded The Best Creative Non-Profit Organisation Of the Year 2019. Thank you to all our volunteers and supporters throughout the years who have helped us in achieving this award.
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.
We 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.

A Surreal Solo Exhibiiton – Leigh Whurr
My work confronts the notion of manufactured perception and the role of language in our relationship with the unfamiliar. “If our reality is undefinable we become, isolated in our own perspective and therefore silenced. I enjoy producing digital paintings and the are printed and mounted on aluminium.”
A big thank you to all our supporters who help us to keep going!
