The By Artist Gallery

Phakama’s Young Creative, Ellis Lewis-Dragstra, was awarded our first ever Young Artist Bursary, creating The By Artist Gallery.

The idea of the project was to create a pop-up gallery space where all art forms can come together in a celebration, to showcase new work between artists and the public. Anyone could apply to be part of these exhibitions! From established artists to someone who’s never done anything within the arts world before. This was also a great opportunity for emerging artists to promote themselves for free.

The By Artist Gallery gave artists who aren’t fully confident in their work or are having trouble promoting themselves the opportunity to take part in a public showcase of their work and meet likeminded people.

The By Artist Gallery ran from the 21st July – 30th August at Rich Mix as part of their Youth Takeover Festival.
