Greyfriars Art Space is an unincorporated association of members. Membership runs from 1 April each year. The small membership fee of £20 per annum contributes towards the running costs of the association.

As an artist-run organisation, we invite pro-active input from our members. The day-to-day management of the Association is carried out by a voluntary Committee who are drawn from the members. All members are expected to agree to the objects and rules of the Association as set out in the Constitution*.

Membership is available to all visual artists and other creative people who are resident in, or base their practice in and around West Norfolk. Membership is open to all persons regardless of age, religious belief, political opinion, colour, race, sex, marital status, sexual orientation or disability, provided they are interested in carrying out activities in the visual arts and crafts and approve the objects and rules of the Association.
