East Gallery is a city centre public art space showcasing a programme of exhibitions by internationally recognised artists, curators, and design practitioners
Exhibitions are originated by Norwich University of the Arts or in collaboration with national and international partners. All our exhibitions are accompanied by seminars and lectures delivered by specialists and curators, which enrich the University experience for students and those living and working in Norwich, as well as visitors to our city.
This summer East Gallery is launching East Projects, a new series of exhibitions, performances and events that showcase current research from Norwich University of the Arts in the disciplines of Fine Art, Film, Photography, Design and Gaming.
The East Gallery venue and programme is funded by Norwich University of the Arts.

“As an East Gallery Assistant you get first hand insight into how people look at art – you are literally a fly on the wall, so getting feedback on other people’s art is really useful, because it’s basically a big group crit.”
