Based in the heart of London, Delfina Foundation is an independent, non-profit foundation dedicated to facilitating artistic exchange and developing creative practice through residencies, partnerships and public programming.
Founded in 2007, Delfina Foundation promotes artistic exchange and experimentation. We create opportunities for emerging and established artists, curators and writers to reflect on what they do, position their practice within relevant global discourse, create career-defining research and commissions, and network with colleagues. We forge international collaborations to build shared platforms to incubate, to present and to discuss common practices and themes.

Alongside imagining, testing and modelling a free public gallery, we are engaged in an expanded range of public activities – we make art, curate exhibitions, programme events, devise public art strategies, serve as commissioning agents, create production facilities, produce public art projects, generate and apply research, develop talent, train future art leaders and create structures to support artists locally, nationally and internationally. Our ESP programme supports and exercises new models for artists and curators to research, produce and thrive, and develops regional talent positioned in productive local and national contexts with an international viewpoint.

Primary creates an open environment for artistic research and production through the provision of studio and workshop spaces, and an innovative public programme.
Primary was initiated by artists wishing to create an organisation that placed artistic research and production as a public process at the core of its work. Opened in March 2012, Primary was set up by Nottingham Studios Ltd, an artist-focused not-for-profit organisation established as a registered charity in 2006. With support from Nottingham City Council, Arts Council England and Foyle Foundation, Primary has transformed a Grade II listed building in an inner city area of Nottingham into a new cultural resource.
