Free Space Project

The Free Space Project is a charity supporting arts and community initiatives within Kentish Town Health Centre, Camden. Established in 2010, our aim is to relieve mental and physical suffering through the use of the arts and holistic care in conjunction with the James Wigg GP Practice.

We provide a range of projects to our patients and those in the local community. From arts workshops to Dance for Parkinson’s, a chronic pain group, and much much more. To see what we have currently running please visit our What’s On page.


Our award winning purpose built exhibition space on the first floor displays work on themes surrounding health and well-being from various perspectives. We work closely with both emerging and established artists to bring thought-provoking artwork to patients and visitors. Click here to see more about our current and past exhibitions.

You can also self-refer by contacting us directly about a project if you have any questions.

Yes if you are interested in volunteering opportunities with us please sign up to our volunteer mailing list here and we will email you when we have availability.

Most of our workshops and projects are free to attend. Occasionally we charge in order to cover materials costs or similar, prices will be found through Eventbrite when there is a charge.

The gallery is available for commercial hire although all hire queries will need to fit within our remit, since we are an arts and health charity based within a health centre. We have a full price list for hire costs available to download here.

We are not currently looking for facilitators or artists to run any workshops or projects with us. We do run the monthly Arts & Health Hub, which is an opportunity for artists exploring wellbeing in their practice to meet and share ideas and work.

The Free Space Project is supported by registered charity Kentish Town Improvement Fund (charity no. 1124077).
