Aire Place studios

Aire Place Studios is a creative studio which holds spaces of equality and solidarity. We host comfortable studios spaces, hold safer spaces for workshops and a bold gallery space centred around innovation and inclusivity. 

Aire Place Studios also features a collective of associated artists who exist to radically uplift under-represented creatives with empathy and warmth to realise the potential of those often overlooked by traditional art institutions. This dynamic collaboration builds trust and collective accountability to serve our communities.

“ I will be forever be grateful for this opportunity and having the pleasure to visit the incredible space at Aire Place Studios gallery and engaging in meaningful conversations with the staff…..I look forward to visiting Aire Place Studios in the future thank you for your efforts, dedication and passion for helping creatives from all backgrounds share their vision in your incredible space .” (Contributor to PRINT IT exhibition. Received on Whatsapp April 2022)

We are part of Arts Together because we have inclusion at the heart of what we do and believe that it’s always “better together!”.

  • Sarah - Creative Director

    I am a Welsh born, Leeds-based Artist /Curator working in sculpture and photography. I’m committed and active in the visual arts community in Leeds, establishing Aire Place Studios, a predominantly LGBTQIA+ and disabled artist-led creative community space focusing on giving a platform to creatives who wouldn’t traditionally have such opportunities. My favourite food is popcorn - Salted only.

  • Lucy - Exhibitions

    As the Galley & Project Assistant for APS I manage the exhibitions programme for the gallery. I get to work with some incredible artists, making their shows a reality. My fun fact is that I love gothic horror and enjoy a good ghost walk if there's one going.
