York­shire Artspace has ac­quired the whole of the Ex­change Place build­ing for an undis­closed sum. Fund­ing and sup­port from Arts Coun­cil Eng­land made the ac­qui­si­tion pos­si­ble.

“It is im­por­tant we main­tain Sh­effield’s cre­ative hub and pro­vide af­ford­able space to those in our city’s cre­ative in­dus­tries.

“Ex­change Place and York­shire Artspace are at the heart of this and in­creas­ingly are be­com­ing a cen­tre for new ideas and tal­ent. We want to fur­ther build upon this cre­ative spirit, which en­hances our city, its ap­peal and its en­vi­ron­ment.”
