As a registered charity Aspex Gallery, as many art organisations across the UK are diversifying by generating forms of income for themselves to become self-sustaining.
Aspex in Gunwharf Quays offers office hire and even desk space to local creative business owners. Helping to support the needs of local business owners and opening opportunities for collaborative working too.
Joanne Bushnell, director at Aspex said; “We are delighted to have Creative Clique here at Aspex. Their business and their style really fits with the contemporary look and feel of the Gallery.”
“We would like more creative businesses to come along and see the opportunities here and the space available for hire plus the benefits of joining us include significant discounts for their staff in our café too.”
Creative Clique’s decision to move to this landmark address is a true reflection of this company’s flamboyant approach and desire to grow. It’s only moved a short distance from its original home in Southsea.
Joanne Martin, the driving force at Creative Clique explained: “Trying to find the right location was a tricky one and then, tad dah; it all fell into place. We wanted to stay in Portsmouth, as we love being beside the sea. Gunwharf Quays is the modern hub of regeneration in the city, which made it the perfect choice. A great creative office space to complement our unique style.”
“The move has already opened up opportunities for our business and being in such a great lively part of the city it’s just brilliant.
“Visitors to our new set-up have been really impressed with our new home, and so are we!”
Aspex is located behind the Loch Fyne restaurant and is Portsmouth’s leading contemporary art gallery, which also boasts a delightful café within its historic setting in the Vulcan Building.
