Gatehouse Arts

Currently a CPD programme is available for artists in the Harlow region. Alongside the development of studios, workshops, and exhibition, community and education programmes in Harlow, ACAVA has established a continuing professional development programme for local artists.

The initiative, funded by Harlow Council, Essex County Council, Harlow Renaissance, Harlow Town Centre Management and Arts Council England, aims to create a sustainable visual arts community in the town. Despite its designation as Britain's only Sculpture Town, Harlow had few studios and limited opportunities for young artists to develop their practice, and engage with each other and their communities.
