Haarlem Artspace champions rural contemporary art regionally, nationally and internationally through gallery and online exhibitions, residencies, publications, symposia, talks and events.

With an ambitious annual programme of exhibitions, residencies and events, Haarlem Artspace attracts broad audiences to the historic town of Wirksworth, which sits in an inspiring landscape. Collaboration is at the heart of our work and through connections to a broad cultural network, we encourage the cross-pollination of ideas and facilitate inter-disciplinary knowledge exchange.

History of Haarlem

Haarlem was the first coal-powered mill in the world and is one of the possible settings of George Eliot’s Mill on the Floss.
