2013 Summer Studio: Expressions of Interest

RM is currently seeking expressions of interest for its Summer Studio. Over the summer weeks, while RM takes a break from hosting exhibitions, we would like to offer the gallery space up to be used as a shared studio (share with three or four others).  This year, in addition to providing a space for self initiated projects, the shared studio will include a programme of activities that look to create shared experiences between the studio artists and RM.

The space will be available from 7 January until 15 February. If you are interested in this opportunity please send an expression of interest to info@rm103.org before 5pm, 21 December.
