We aim to provide Bolton with contemporary arts opportunities reflective of the diverse community of Bolton.

Bolton Contemporary CIC is visual arts group interested in socially engaged art practice. We believe making and interacting with visual art is something that should be accessible to everyone. We are particularly interested in working with people representative of Bolton’s diverse population. 

Initially BC will operate as a Risograph print studio and gallery. We have secured a shop space (details to be announced soon) and a Riso MZ770 with five colour inks (black, orange, fluorescent pink, red and blue). This equipment will allow us to produce prints up to A3.

We are looking to offer our services as cheaply as possible and are applying for funding to provide free sessions and materials to underrepresented groups. We wish to provide a platform for all age groups, abilities and backgrounds to produce, exhibit and engage with Contemporary Art.
