Art Assembly curate multi artist events, facilitate new collaborations and provide opportunities to showcase experimental work.We are dedicated to providing opportunities for emerging artists to perform on a professional platform at each event. Accessibility is a key concern for the organisation and where possible we produce free events and workshops programmed to enrich artistic practice, alongside our ticketed events.
