Aller Park Studios is an artist-led project on the Dartington Trust estate in Devon. Evening and weekend events, including artist film screenings, talks, workshops and performances, are open to all. International and UK-based artists and performers are invited to visit and share their work in a contemporary art programme that engages with the experimental, cross-disciplinary traditions of Dartington.

Aller Park Studios activity is ambitious, cooperative and informal. Public events are conversational rather than presentational – sharing work we love, work in progress and thinking out loud.

The Aller Park Studios programme has been suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic. Programming and projects for 2021 and 2022 are in development. Sign up to our NEWSLETTER to receive upcoming news.
