Building a unique creative facility for artists, the public and local and international communities

Primary is an artist-led space that exists to support creative research and to develop new ways of engaging audiences. Offering dedicated artists studios alongside more flexible spaces, both within and outside the building, where artists from around the world can meet and work in the heart of Nottingham. Primary is a place where artists and the public can share, experiment and learn about contemporary visual art through an ambitious programme of events and activities.

Primary is a partner of the Nottingham artist led consortium with Backlit and One Thoresby Street, working together to develop sustainability, activity and profile for the contemporary visual arts and artists within the city.
