CAST has four key spaces that are regularly open to the public: CAST Café, Studio 4, Studio 15, and our black box screening space.
Studio 4 is CAST’s learning space, often used for workshops or school groups, and Studio 15 is CAST’s residency space so will occasionally be programmed for events. Both spaces are open for hire upon enquiry. Studio 15 is on the first floor of the building without any step-free access – please contact CAST if this will be a problem during your visit: [email protected].
The screening space regularly holds artist talks, film screenings, and schools’ workshops and is located on CAST’s ground floor towards the back of the building with step-free access.
The rest of CAST’s building comprises artist studios which are only open to the public once a year during an open studios event.
The rear entrance to the building can be reached by steps from Wendron Street car park and there are Cornwall Council car parks within a short walk.
