MEANTIME was a space for the development and production of contemporary art in central Cheltenham from 2007 to 2014, located in Oxford Passage. MEANTIME presented a year-round programme of artist-residencies, exhibitions, workshops, discussions and live events such as music, film and performance. It occupied a mid-point, neither an artist’s studio nor a gallery, but an active workspace somewhere between. MEANTIME supported artists to experiment and realise new work, and offered a resource for engagement in and discussion around current artistic practice.
Post-building, MEANTIME has become a commissioning organisation, working with communities in Cheltenham to activate spaces in the public realm.
