Changes to the EMBASSY membership structure.
EMBASSY Membership is open to artists and students based anywhere in the UK. This year we are changing our membership structure to an annual turnover structure, starting on the 20th of February 2023 and running until the 20th of February 2024.
We are also introducing a sliding scale for membership, with three price points in order to make the opportunity more affordable to our wider community.
Annual membership costs for 2023 are as follows:
£2 – Tier one
£8 – Tier two
£15 – Tier three
All membership offer the same benefits, please pay a price point that feels most applicable to you.

EMBASSY membership benefits
EMBASSY members receive many opportunities to showcase in and around EMBASSY Gallery and are regularly updated on current and upcoming events. These opportunities include showing work in the annual members show, member led projects, The new members project space, and membership events, including film screenings, performance nights, crit clubs and much more!
Members show and performance events
The EMBASSY members show is a non-selective, salon style show in which we hang all work submitted. The members show is a part of our yearly recurring programme and it is a direct way to support and showcase our members. The show offers an open and welcoming environment to exhibit work and a chance to share performance or live works in front of an audience.
EMBASSY would like to introduce more community socials and day trips, as an opportunity to share ideas and get to know one another. Members will be informed of events through a discord group, which will be available to access via invitation once your membership sign up has been processed.
Our Members Day will run on a regular, monthly basis. Gatherings will involve trips to other galleries in Scotland, film screenings, performance nights, and much more!
Members are welcome to get involved in the programming of our monthly members day, the embassy committee is open to suggestions of projects, workshops, socials and other
Collaborations! Got a workshop you run? A book you love? A film to share? Hit us up!
These member-led sessions are a space to share and discuss work in progress, finished pieces or a project proposal; anything that would be useful for you to have feedback on. We will provide biscuits and a nice hot beverage to dunk them in.
The date in which a crit will take place will be decided in relation to the monthly availability of our Members and EMBASSY’s calendar.
Members Project Space
A new addition to the EMBASSY membership is the Members Project Space. As an EMBASSY member, you will have the opportunity to book a full day time slot during our new Project Space weeks. These time slots will run from 9:00am to 17:00, or from 17:00 till 22:00.
These Project Space weeks will be scheduled around the EMBASSY programme, and could be used for any non-permanent art making or project, such as filming, painting, dancing, documenting, performing, or whatever you can think of!
If you would like to use your Project Space slot for a public facing events, like a performance night or a one day exhibition, please contact the EMBASSY committee with your idea and this can be possible as well.
EMBASSY gallery has a selection of plinths, projectors, screens, media players, and headphones which can be made available upon request.
As a member, you can have your name, website, and socials featured on the Members page of our website!
