our mission


The Bedroom Artists Collective is an art group that welcomes all emerging and independent artists. Our aims are simple: to support and connect artists together, to connect the public to their work, and to give free access to, and encourage, creativity in everyone we meet. We hold exhibitions that are affordable to those taking part and run free workshops for the public during our shows.

We are an incubator and amplifier for home-grown talent and ideas. We join forces with artists from the entire creative spectrum, of varying disciplines and experience. We are inclusive, and want to nurture, and develop a thriving creative atmosphere and network.

We are a creative organisation that supports unrepresented artists. We provide a platform for emerging artists who otherwise wouldn’t see their work in the context of an exhibition or in public.

With an emphasis on presenting pieces and projects that push the boundaries of art we inspire the local communities to explore new creative practices too. We hold free creative workshops in our exhibition spaces for visitors.

We support great ideas and self-development by encouraging artistic collaborations, and providing volunteer opportunities in all working aspects of the collective; including curatorial, admin and production opportunities. We develop concepts behind exhibition and projects collaboratively with our collective.

We have found that when you get people interested in creating together then they all benefit, developing their own practice, finding an audience and carrying out large scale projects that they wouldn’t be able to do on their own.


Why are we called The Bedroom Artists Collective?

Many artists work without a studio, even from their bedrooms. And so, we called ourselves the Bedroom Artists Collective. In the harsh financial environment today, with studios and exhibition spaces unaffordable, we find a way to bridge the ever-widening gap through collaboration.

Bedroom Artists was founded in 2016 by Julie Pallot and Nora Emilia as a solution to the difficulties faced by independent, unaffiliated artists. The first exhibition was at the Hive, Dalston, featuring 36 individual Bedroom Artists.
