Profile

Based in the heart of Plasnewydd and Roath, The Gate is a community arts centre that seeks to engage our diverse local community in enjoying the arts and discovering their creativity. We exist to provide the space and opportunity to enjoy, to create, to discuss and debate, to share ideas and to learn new skills through interactive events and classes.

Our programme boasts an equal mix of events that celebrate the creativity of others in theatre, dance, music, as well as the chance to discover your own creativity, whether that be through a class or a more informal event such as Drink & Draw in The Pulpit café bar. The Gate is home to BREW, a free monthly community event where local artists lead a group arts workshop. We have enjoyed sessions from ceramics, live music and pizza making, to name a few!

The Gallery has monthly exhibitions that celebrate local artists and different mediums. Already this year we have had photography, illustration, animation, video games, soundtracks, acrylics, among others. Our exhibitions range from individual artists and collaborations to open community exhibitions, providing the opportunity for both established and up-and-coming artists to exhibit in the brilliant space of The Gallery.

We are in the process of crowdfunding to transform a rundown, unresourced studio into 'The Loft'; an inspiring creative space, where people can discover and express their creativity whilst spending time with friends, old and new.

We have so many not-to-be-missed events going on at The Gate, make sure you connect with us on social media to keep up with everything going on. Have an idea of something you want to see here? Get in touch and let us know!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
