Voids Activation Pop-up Project: Call for Pop-up Occupiers

Westminster City Council celebrates Art in Every Form in partnership with Art of London

This open call provides a unique opportunity for UK artists and start-ups to activate void premises and showcase their work in the Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square areas for free during a period of up to three months.

The project aims to support the creative sector by giving emerging artists and local talent maximum exposure and the necessary tools to turn void premises into practiced spaces where art in every form can be celebrated, produced and experienced through activities that encourage audience engagement.
