ROOM is an artwork and mobile art space made from a recycled redundant shipping container. It was commissioned by Art at the Centre, and funded by Arts Council England in November 2010. Since then it has achieved high levels of public engagement and creative outputs including 17 separate artist research projects. The space has supported emerging artists across North Kent working in public spaces and placing them in contexts outside the gallery. ROOM is now extending this journey connecting with multiple partners in the South East region including Brighton Photo Biennial, University of Kent, and South Coast College, Hastings.
ROOM is curated by Simon Barker and artist Nicole Molette.
