support our creative community and help it to flourish

Our Friends scheme offers you the opportunity to become a part of Primary and play a crucial role in supporting our work. Primary is an artist-led space providing studios, residencies, exhibitions and events. Since 2011 we have transformed a Victorian school in Nottingham into a centre for artistic production; with studios for over thirty artists and independent creative businesses, and a unique public programme of free exhibitions and events.

Your support helps Primary to:

  • Deliver our artistic programme, invest in new work and help artists’ development.
  • Expand our engagement programme and cultivate our relationships with community partners.
  • Provide affordable studios.
  • Maintain our Grade II listed building so it remains a home for artistic activity.
  • Positively contribute to the local area.
