We seek inquisitive and broad practices that are new, innovative and free from commercial nature by solo, duo, collaborating artists and curators. The Director and Trust will prioritise proposals of a high quality that focus on the development of experimental artistic practice and relate, add to and deepen the perspectives on local, national and global conversations. 

The Trust aims to present original exhibitions that responds and works in harmony with the Blue Oyster space, locale and history. To read and understand more about the Trust's mission and goals visit our About Page online.
