Space 18 is a project to give emerging Artists an Artist in Residence opportunity to develop their practice.
In 2016 and 2017 artists used empty shop space in High Town, Luton but this year the artists have the opportunity to use a town centre location, Storefront in Bute Street for discussion, research, networking, production and exhibition.
Over the month 5 Luton artists will take over Storefront with a series of exhibitions and workshops for the local community, find out more about the artists and their projects below:
