R Space is a visual arts and crafts space, presenting and commissioning a programme of exhibitions and arts activity based in The Linen Rooms in the heart of the City of Lisburn, Northern Ireland.
R Space’s ambition is to increase access, understanding and enjoyment of contemporary visual arts, crafts, design and other related arts activities. It collaborates with a diverse range of excellent and challenging artists and designers working in different media, providing audiences from a wide range of educational, social and cultural backgrounds with different points of access to the arts.
R Space is a lively and welcoming environment that excites visitors into thinking and talking about the arts and provides an opportunity to purchase visual arts and craft and for their own homes and collections.
R Space exhibits the work of artists and makers who explore Materials, Messages and Methods of production of work that has meaning in its quality. It is important that their work considers What they use, Why they use it and How they present its outcome.
