The Venue: The Back Loft is a spacious and light filled open-plan loft located at the back of La Catedral Studios. This inspired space functions as an informal artists' playground, available for art-related projects, e.g. art exhibitions, live art events, salons, theatrical performances, rehearsals and drama workshops, dance, life drawing, photo-shoots, film locations, video projections etc. Since its establishment in 2005, the Back Loft has played host to a great array of events independently curated by individuals and collectives.
Artwave’s future goals: Art Wave's main aim is to promote every kind of art and every artist - new and already established. In its events it's going to focus on showing the diversity of art and its creators as well as showing that completely different art media can strongly complement each other. In order to do so, Art Wave wants to run many events, like exhibitions, workshops, concerts and festivals, some of which may happen on an annual basis. We want to organise group and solo events and also support emerging and cooperate with established collectives. We want to be an open forum, where people can discuss new trends, share ideas, gain experience and promote themselves and their works. Finally we want to promote and show that all media have their power.
