“After identifying a need within the local community for a multi-functional, fully accessible and interchangeable arts space; Wigflex, Offshoots and I’m Not From London have taken on a 10-year lease for the Fisher Gate Point building in Nottingham city centre. With key focus on the arts, the building will be converted into a multi-use creative hub, open to the entire community as a space to learn, create, collaborate and exhibit within. Digital Arts including music will be a particular focus in-line with the Arts Council’s Let’s Create Strategy for 2020 – 2030. Made up of a main gallery space, music and art studios plus co-working offices and longer-term rentable offices, Fishergate Point has the potential to become the epicentre of Nottingham’s growing creative community.”

“We were delighted when we heard that a group of really influential Nottingham creatives with a strong track record were taking on such a great property at key location in the Creative Quarter. Their plans for a creative business centre and events space are very welcome indeed and another sign I think that it’s the east side of Nottingham, from Flo Skatepark up through Sneinton Market to Metronome, that is rising fastest right now. It’s the place to be.”
