The Fish Factory Art Space CIC is offering a rolling programme of 2-4 week residencies at it's new venue in Penryn, Cornwall. Opened in 2011 by local artist Rose Hatcher, the Fish Factory has provided a forum for both Cornish emerging artists and international collaborators working in challenging and diverse mediums from interactive installations, to murals, to photomontage, printmaking, music and film. We are looking for artists that want to engage with our lively and varied programme of contemporary, alternative and innovative visual arts, performance and events.

Fish Factory Art Space inhabits a former sail loft in Penryn, Cornwall, South West England. It houses studios, a small event space/independant gallery, a vegan cafe and a small shop. Running since 2011 the Fish Factory has recently moved from it's former home on Falmouth Wharves to a new permanent space in Penryn. The diverse offerings have one thing in common: that they flourish in the open and welcoming atmosphere the Fish Factory offers. A definite alternative to the corporate mainstream face of modern art today.
