Gallery Space

I think the exhibition was beautifully hung and it is a lovely light space to work within and view paintings. It was great to have the opportunity to have live music and also a Palestinian menu at the cafe. My father would have been absolutely delighted at such marvellous integration. The whole atmosphere at Coexist is just right – a pleasant blend of formal yet accessible and friendly.

Thank you for your help with the pop up shop, the young people felt it was really successful. We had good footfall throughout the day and it was great for them to be able to showcase their work on a professional platform.

Great place to exhibit and friendly/easy to deal with. The new bigger space is good so 2 people can share. Handy to be able to pick our launch night when we wanted to so that more people could come; it was also great to be able to bring drinks and snacks for friends.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity – the exhibition was a success in terms of kick starting the project – the space was perfect for the amount of work and it was fine to install stuff. Overall I am happy with the experience and the gallery works really well staff really helpful.
