Donate to Backlit
We are a voluntary run gallery and studio space, so if you would like to support the future of Backlit then please donate below
Renting a space
The spaces are between £60-£150 per month, all inclusive. By becoming a member of Backlit Studio, you are entitled to solo exhibitions and group shows as part of the regular Backlit Gallery programme and we are currently arranging a regular programme of group crit sessions with other local practitioner and students . You will also have a space on the Backlit website. The studio has wireless broadband, a mac computer, toilets and a kitchen. There is no minimum period, we just ask for a £5 key deposit and 2 months notice if you decide to leave.
How to Apply
If you would like become a Studio Member you can download the application form here.
Once you have filled in the application form please return either via post or email along with a maximum of 10 images of your work. Backlit Studio, Alfred House, Ashley Street, Sneinton, NG3 1JG
Once we have viewed your application we will invite you to attend an informal interview at the studios so that we can become better acquainted. (Enclose an SAE if you would like your visual material returned)
Becoming a member
This entitles you to all the benefits of being a studio member but without actually renting a space. This includes being kept informed of opportunities and events through our members mailing list, crit sessions and regular meetings and social events. If you would like to become a member then please send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
