Temporary Contemporary

Temporary Contemporary Temporary access to space for artists

Temporary Contemporary began as a partnership with Kirklees Council and the School of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Huddersfield to stimulate arts and cultural activities in vacant spaces in Huddersfield. The project has included programming creative and cultural activities in the Market Gallery in Queensgate Market, using empty market stalls and utilising vacant retail units in the Piazza shopping centre to showcase the work of artists and arts organisations.

The Temporary Contemporary initiative is evolving into the next phase by working n partnership with other temporary space providers and Huddersfield BID. Through this partnership we intend to offer a variety of diverse opportunities across Huddersfield with the aim of animating the streets and buildings while supporting creative development and a unique experience for visitors.

Temporary Contemporary recognises that temporary access to space can help turn an idea into a reality, it can provide the test bed for innovation and that much needed freedom to develop, grow and experiment.
