Greatmore Art Event Space
Greatmore Studios has a long and proud history of supporting Art Making and the development of an artists’ professional practice. Many Alumni have gone on to highly successful artistic careers on the global stage, post Greatmore. Greatmore Street Studios offers artists the unique combination of un-distracted dedication to studio work and a supportive, vibrant environment. The task of the community is to provide space and opportunity for the deepening of experience, where creativity and experimentation can be nurtured; this leads to the development of career opportunities and a confidence to participate in the art industry locally, in Africa and abroad.
While focusing on supporting artists, Greatmore Studios strongly recognises the importance of connecting with the public at all levels and is aware of the impact that the visual arts has on societies, its role in education, communication and health. Visual literacy is an essential tool to expanding our vision and interaction with all cultural and language groups. The promotion of innovative, imaginative thinking contributes to family and social cohesion. As such, the organisation is deeply committed to developing participatory projects, learning activities and other public events that engage and inspire audiences at all ages.
