Haarlem Artspace champions rural contemporary art. We provide artists and creatives with unique, flexible spaces for cultivating practice and have a purpose built public gallery.

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. Haarlem Artspace also connects to a broader artistic network, enabling knowledge exchange across disciplines whilst encouraging collaboration and the cross-pollination of ideas.
