About 16 Nicholson Street
16 Nicholson is a Glasgow based non-profit organisation. Established in 2016, it is run by a dedicated team of volunteers, while all organisational and programming aspects are managed by Isabella Shields and Tine Bek.
16 Nicholson is an assembly focused on the sharing of ideas, organising events, workshops, talks, mentorship programmes and exhibitions. The aim is to help create a dialogue between artists, and makers from Scotland and to incorporate networking with international artists. By introducing and encouraging collaborations between established and more emerging artists we hope to host a space where these meetings can be realised and developed.
By hosting and organising events and programmes 16 Nicholson works as a curatorial entity with a core interest in collaboration and critical discussions and discourses between those involved within the Scottish art sphere.
Our programming consists of three aspects;
- Events, Mentorship programmes and residency opportunities. Here our focus is on the community, development and an exchanging of skills and ideas.
- Short term exhibitions, these are fully funded and organised by the individual artists, and 16 Nicholson Street operates more as a facilitator in these instants.
- Longterm exhibition projects, where we curate events and exhibitions in collaborations with the artists involved.
