101 Outdoor Arts Creation space is a hub of creativity. As a physical resource for artists, the centre offers space to develop outdoor and site-specific work with specialised facilities ready to welcome and host creatives. Additionally, their team are on hand to assist with production advice, administration advice, scratch performances support and more; offering residencies to nurture artists who are developing their practice. As well as 101 being a space for creation, it becomes a catalyst for new artist relationships. Artists often meet others in residency; expanding their networks and sharing their knowledge.
As a unique space dedicated to artists, 101 are continually nurturing relationships with companies, and have an open form on their website to enquire about possible residency opportunities. 101 also offer opportunities for artist development such as 101 Labs and Toolbox.
In 2021, 101 continues to remain open supporting creation where work can continue safely.

Why we joined Without Walls
Being a part of the Without Walls network becomes another part of 101’s offer to artists, engaging with the wider Outdoor Arts sector and having that greater awareness for what is happening across the industry. This allows 101 to offer even more resources and support to the artists in residency, and then in turn being a part of Without Walls advocates for the resources that 101 offer to the industry.
The wider platform of Without Walls allows 101 to connect with more artists, boost the support available for this creation space and offers wider sector insight.
Who are 101?
101 is born out of the Outdoor Arts programme at Corn Exchange Newbury.
Rooted in the local community, they regularly host sharings of artists’ works and become a magnet for outdoor artists to travel and create in Newbury, then going on to perform and tour nationally and internationally.
Based on a former missile base and supported by Greenham Trust, 101 is rooted in local history. Now, they continue to develop relationships with local artists and businesses to not only draw in artists nationally but also offer opportunities for those working locally.
Offering sharings of creative work, they welcome audiences in and are continuing to nurture their hyper-local community of audiences.
