Fish Factory Art Space inhabits a warehouse on the edge of Falmouth Harbour, close to both Falmouth & Penryn in Cornwall, South West England. It houses 21 studios, a small event space and an independant gallery which features a lively and varied program of contemporary, alternative and innovative visual arts, performance and events. Opened in 2011 by local artist Rose Hatcher, the space has provided a forum for both Cornish emerging artists and international collaborators working in challenging and diverse mediums from interactive installations, to murals, to photomontage, printmaking, music and film. In 2017 the offsite project OTSAM (Of Traditional Song and Music) opened in Penryn, adding an acoustic recording studio to the facilities. The diverse offerings have one thing in common: that they flourish in the open and welcoming atmosphere the Fish Factory offers. A definite alternative to the corporate mainstream face of modern art today.
