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.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
