MEANTIME is an artist-run project-space located in central Cheltenham presenting a monthly programme of artists' residencies, exhibitions, workshops, discussions and other live events such as experimental music, film and performance.
MEANTIME was established in 2007 and aims to provide a platform and resource for active engagement in current artistic practice and the representation of ideas. The residency programme supports artists and practitioners to experiment and realise new work; as such the space is a live, thinking/working environment, made and re-made by those who occupy it.
Projects are discussed on the MEANTIME blog where debate and comment is welcomed.
MEANTIME is open for hot drinks and conversation on the first Friday of every month, 10am-12noon.
