Private View - Launch Event

The Urban Commune has moved to new premises, and we would love you to join us for a Private View in our brand-new studio in Pontefract Town Centre. 

Featuring an art gallery, creative community workspaces for artist, workshop room, wellbeing suite, photography studio and creative lounge, our aim is to be a safe space for teens and adults to be creative whilst taking care of their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing, whether that be through art, painting, networking, music or just being with other likeminded beings.

The Urban Commune is a collaboration between a group of artists, authors and musicians, who believe that art and creativity is good for the soul.

If you would like to join us - please book tickets at https://TUCPV.eventbrite.co.uk, it’s free to attend, but there is an opportunity to make a donation if you wish.

Location - ground floor of King Charles II House between the Library and Tesco.

Date - Thursday 19 October 5.30pm to 8.00pm
