How to start your own space | Arron Gill Interview

Stay at Home 20 May – 31 March 2021


In this interview Josie speaks to Arron Gill from The GAP and The Mix Cafe about his experience of setting up his own space and working in the arts.

He addresses a severe lack of Black and Brown artists starting their own spaces meaning the artist-led scene is mainly white and middle class. He discusses how to start your own space, what barriers he faced, what support he accesses and how much he earns.

A big thank you to Arron for his honest and at times difficult answers for this interview.
