STUDIO

The Book Works Studio offers a specialist bespoke service for range of clients, from artists, designers, galleries, and businesses. We provide binding solutions, develop prototypes and specialise in unique book artworks, boxes, and portfolios. We have an extensive archive, and offer tailored educational events, and bookbinding courses. The Studio generates income from clients and is self-sufficient.

PUBLISHING

Book Works Publishing is dedicated to supporting new work by emerging artists. Our projects are initiated by invitation, open submission, and through guest-curated projects and include publishing, a lecture and seminar programme, exhibitions, the development of an online archive, and artists’ surgeries and workshops.

Our audience is vital to our work. The process of engaging and developing our audience is initiated with our commissioning programme, and driven through all aspects of our activities, particularly our public programme of events, our workshops, artists surgeries and education activities, and through our interest in collaborating with other organisations and libraries. Our programme of commissions is diverse, and reflects our commitment not just to work with cultural workers from all backgrounds, but to invest in networks and programmes that engage, and develop and create new artistic voices.

CHARITY

Book Works is a registered charity, dedicated to advance education for the benefit of the public in the visual arts, particularly books which may be recognised as works of art in their own right.

TRUSTEES

We have a board of trustees who input their range of diverse expertise and interests into our development:

Teresa Drace-Francis (Chair)
Nick Brown
Season Butler
Michael Mack
Gerrie van Noord

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES

Book Works is committed to making a positive impact to address inequality, discrimination and through our work, employment and audience engagement, pursue a programme that foregrounds social justice in the arts. We celebrate and value equality and diversity in all aspects of our work, and are committed to providing an inclusive and supportive environment for all our artists, staff, trustees, and various user groups, through a shared, reflective and open process. Our programme reflects our desire to work with artists and writers that are often unrecognised by mainstream institutions, or those from liberation groups or whose minority identity has historically marginalised them.

As part of its core commitment to celebrating and valuing equality and diversity and to providing an inclusive and supportive environment, and to address injustice Book Works commits itself to:

– Embrace equality and diversity and promoting opportunities for good relations in all areas of its activities.

– Prevent any kind of discrimination, including any form of harassment in relation to age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins), religion or beliefs, sex and sexual orientation or socio-economic background.

– Prevent bullying, harassment, unlawful discrimination and victimisation, and to ensure that all trustees, staff, artists and user groups, and public are treated fairly and with respect.

We are committed to deliver these aims through an equitable process of reasonable adjustment, transparency, access, training and fair representation.
