"From theatres to festivals; museums to live music- Worcester is rich in culture and heritage as well as being home to some amazing organisations and projects. It is important to us that our students understand the exciting, colourful, fast-paced world that they intend to build a career in. Having excellent working relationships with partner organisations of all sizes across the city and the wider region is important to us, we want to work closely with industry so that it can help shape our students learning experience and so that our graduates understand the industry landscape that they want to work in. Collaborative working with external partners means our students have access to exciting and exclusive opportunities. Our aim is to ensure the students of today play a vital part in the creative industries of tomorrow."
David Broster, Head of the School of Arts
PITT Studio & Project Space (est.2012 - incorporated C.I.C 2019) will be our administrative and organisational body responsible for fund raising and programming The Art House 'window spaces.' New commissions and exhibitions by early-mid and established career artists will go hand in hand with the academic programme of Illustration, Fine Art, Game Art and Graphic Design including degree shows, course specific projects and staff research. Pitt Studio, Worcester's oldest dedicated contemporary art space, opened in 2006 as an experimental platform for artists. Originally located in Chestnut Walk, supporting local artists until 2013 where upon it split into two spaces and was renamed PITT Studio and Division of Labour (DoL) with galleries in Worcester and Malvern. In 2014 PITT Studio and DoL moved into Worcester City Art Gallery, where it occupied the old library space. During this time DoL opened a series of satellite spaces in London and Manchester. In 2019 Pitt Studio I Projects opened at 4 Edgar Street.
Division of Labour Gallery (Dol) will be our international advisor and advocate offering new national and global networks with access to the Contemporary Arts tv1arket, UK based Art Galleries/ Museums, curators, commissioners and artists.
