Vision & Aims

“Create– Inspire - Engage ”


Unity Arts Trust C.I.C has a mission.

  • To provide affordable studio space where emerging and established artists and makers can create new work.
  • To provide opportunities for artists and makers to promote their work.
  • To offer opportunities for people to engage with our artists and makers.

UAT’s vision is of a dynamic, thriving and outward-looking community of successful professional artists/craftspeople in Chichester, many of whom have been supported at the outset of their careers by Unity Arts Trust CIC through the opportunity to rent affordable studio space and/or receive mentoring/training/advice for the purpose of life/career development to enable them to be self-supporting. This vision has two interconnecting functions –

  1. The outcomes of the successful life/career development of Artists/craftspeople (including recent graduates) working in affordable studios provided by UAT, are 
  2. to be directed back into the community through open studios events, exhibitions and other events enabling members of the public to engage with artists and their work, visit their studios and learn about their practices (including talks demonstrations, workshops, classes, and other educational and/or community-based activities)


UAT aims to be the studio provider of choice for artists & makers.
