Artist Submissions

Exhibitions at CFCCA are programmed up to two years in advance, and the majority are direct invitations to artists. Therefore we are rarely able to accommodate unsolicited submissions for exhibitions. If you choose to make a submission, it will be reviewed individually by a member of the curatorial team. Please note that CFCCA is unable to offer individual feedback on portfolios. We also recommend that you examine our exhibition history to see whether your work is likely to be suitable within the context of our programme.

Proposals can be submitted to

For all other enquiries please call 0161 832 7271 to be put through to a member of the team who can assist or email
