About Us

The RIPE programme supports graduate artists in the city to exhibit and engage in artistic exchange and experimentation, forming networks and friendships that will help them sustain a fruitful visual arts practice here in Southampton.

The Artists

Each year we work with a new group of graduate artists from Solent University and Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton.
