Artcore is an international centre for contemporary art and creativity based in Derby, UK and home to Artcore Gallery, studios and workspaces as well as a shop and café. A vibrant hub for commissioning, production, presentation, and debate, we offer opportunities for diverse audiences to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion. We believe that contemporary art and creativity are central to the development of people and places. We have an extensive exhibition and residency programme which helps support early, mid-career and established artists to create work which deals with pressing social, political and environmental issues. Each year we welcome people from all sections of the diverse communities of Derby and beyond to experience inspiring, innovative, and high-quality exhibitions and events. Over 25 years we have developed links all over the world, building a global creative community that helps us support aspiring artists in the contemporary art world.
