P21 Gallery is excited to announce an OPEN CALL for our ‘reACT’ programme!

Supported by Amal (a Saïd Foundation programme), we invite UK art students & emerging artists aged 30 and under to submit their work to be considered for ‘reACT’ exhibitions taking place in September & November 2019.

The ‘reACT’ programme has been established to promote and support emerging and student artists whose work is related to the Arab world by providing space for an artistic intervention within the P21 Gallery. Selected artists will have an invaluable opportunity to produce an artwork specifically designed for a section of the P21 Gallery (that is not part of any particular exhibition) for a period of time ranging from 1–3 weeks. P21 Gallery will provide selected artists the space to exhibit their work at no cost, provide a stipend, arrange & support exhibition-related events, and offer opportunities for artist mentorship.
