PEER consistently surprises by creating opportunities for artists to produce exceptional work in unexpected circumstances.
Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate
PEER commissions, produces and presents the highest quality art for its diverse local community, as well as for wider audiences across London, the UK and beyond.
PEER’s Mission is to:
- Offer and promote the highest quality art as being part of daily life, embedding its activities into the local community.
- Be a truly outward-facing and innovative arts organisation on the local high street, led by ideas, excellence and diversity rather than fashion and marketability.
- Nurture and provide a platform for the talent of a diverse range of emerging, mid-career and established artists and enable them to take new risks.
- Offer creative experiences and opportunities to local people of all ages and from a range of economic, social and cultural backgrounds.
PEER is one of Arts Council England's National Portfolio clients.
PEER completed an ambitious two phase development project in spring 2016, reopening with radically improved galleries, a new doubled-glazed façade and a vastly improved public realm area in front of the gallery.
