Standpoint sees art and education as inextricably linked and are committed to providing high quality, flexible educational programmes to meet the demands of a culturally diverse community.

We offer a variety of artist-led learning opportunities:

Professional Practice

Enabling students to gain direct knowledge and experience of working collaboratively with artists and artist led spaces. Aiming to fill in gaps lost in current education models, the program provides an insight into artist’s practice post-collage, from how to set up an artist run space, exhibiting and curating, to running a successful studio practice.

Standpoint Residencies

SFacilitating artists’ development and enabling the production of new work in a supportive environment, whilst tapping into the expertise and diverse knowledge of Standpoint’s artists and makers.

Standpoint Tours

Standpoint offers free tours for groups, giving the opportunity to explore our exhibitions and studios. Through the tour visitors have the opportunity to meet Standpoint artists and gain an insight into the running of an artist led space.

Community & Youth Activities

Standpoint works with the local community, schools and youth groups to explore contemporary art making through a diverse range of participatory workshops and school holiday events. We provide opportunities for young people to learn new skills and techniques from inspiring artists; workshops have involved ceramics, painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and conservation.


We provide work experience through gallery internships and work placement programmes.
