About

We're very excited to start the new year with an exhibition from Rising Arts - a social enterprise co-created with young people for those 16-25 year old visual artists, film makers, illustrators and others who are keen to work in the creative sector. It's an incubator for young talent, offering platforms to showcase work, creative leadership training and mentoring support. 

This January, six Associate Artists working with Rising Arts are exhibiting their work at The Station's gallery space. 

We've had a lovely launch event on 19th January and you can see parts of it below. Feel free to come in and have a look when you can and if you'd like to get in touch with one of the artists, we can make it happen for you.
