Regular Groups

We reopened on 22 July, in accordance with government guidelines and with carefully planned social distancing measures and safety measures in place. For details see our announcement page and FAQs page.
Our events and tours are currently on hold, but don’t miss our series of free artist-led Live Making Workshops taking place on our @Hello_Towner Instagram account every Thursday at 2.00pm.

Towner has a long and successful history of supporting artists through commissioning, collecting and exhibiting their work. Less well known or developed, is the provision of studio space and ongoing professional development for artists at all stages of their career. Amidst the fast-changing educational and economic landscape, we are taking time during our tenth anniversary year in this building, to reflect on how we best support artistic practice, especially for local artists, in a truly holistic and sustainable way.

Art School is our answer. Built from the deep and wide-ranging relationships through our learning programme, we are extending our partnerships with schools, colleges, universities and public services, to create an offer that includes artist residencies, talks, events and a summer programme. Art School will facilitate learning across practices and ages, ensuring conversations between all the artists we work with, enabling a richer experience for individuals, organisations and our audience.
