Spacex, Exeter's contemporary visual art organisation, is at an exciting point in its forty year history. After a period of temporary closure in response to funding reductions, the organisation has changed the way it works. In place of being a gallery with a rolling programme of exhibitions Spacex now produces projects in collaboration with a wide range of partners.

Enabling the artistic process remains at the core of what Spacex does. We are passionate about giving artists the opportunity to pursue new directions and take risks, and offering this new residency programme is one way in which we will continue to do this.

But we need your help to succeed, this Kickstarter campaign will cover the cost of two artists residencies and a series of associated events and learning projects in 2015–2016. The residencies will enable artists to develop their practice in a supportive and critically engaged environment and the associated programme will create opportunities for the public to engage with the artists' work.

We have teamed up with Spacex exhibiting artists to offer rewards that tell our story. The artworks on offer encourage our backers to enjoy art that has been produced as part of Spacex projects and by artists that we have worked with in recent years, as well as a variety of gifts from our archive.
