G12 Krowji, Contemporary Arts Space

G12 Krowji, our new contemporary arts space, is a residency, exhibition and arts events space for hire based at Krowji, Redruth, Cornwall.

We aim to support local and international emerging talent alongside more established artists and arts workers. We welcome applications from rigorous, contemporary, critically engaged artists, arts workers, and collectives. This space is suitable for those who wish to present new work as well as test out ideas and show them to the public. This includes graduates looking to continue experimenting with their practice after university or looking to establish themselves within the local art scene.
