BERMONDSEY PROJECT SPACE
A vibrant, not-for-profit creative platform promoting the fusion of art, photography and culture.
Founded in 2015, Bermondsey Project Space is based in the vibrant Bermondsey Street, London. Exhibitions, events and out-reach educational projects combine the power of the world famous OLYMPUS brand with the UK-wide reach of STATE F22 magazine, one of UK’s most innovative art & photography magazines.
Project Space presents art & photography from across the UK, offering a flagship venue for both emerging and established artists. This, combined with our visionary educational and early learning programmes, promotes freedom of creative expression through the visual arts.
The converted Georgian townhouse provides three exhibition rooms and our proximity to the world-famous White Cube gallery establishes interest from all levels of the contemporary art world. Project Space is a recognised arts venue in London and a key cultural centre in the locality and beyond.
With support and backing from the global brand Olympus, we organise and provide exhibitions like no other.
“We are really pleased to support Bermondsey Project Space. This association is part of a wider programme that includes involvement in fashion, design and visual arts in general. The venue not only allows us to showcase established and emerging talent but also provides an excellent base for workshops, talks and events.
Added to that, we plan community outreach and education activity with some of our exceptional photographers. Our mission is to showcase art and design in the UK and encourage new talent in photography and beyond.”

EDUCATION WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
Educational outreach is an important part of the overall programming.
Alongside our active visual arts programme, we offer opportunities for the local community via a number of educational initiatives. ‘My Home; My Street; My School’ is a photography project that works with a local school, loaning students camera equipment. The results are being judged and exhibited at Project Space with camera equipment prizes from our sponsor.
By selecting guest exhibitions from significant touring shows, we showcase regional artists and arts organisations in Central London.
There is also a programme of photography masterclasses, workshops and seminars.
