Metroland Cultures is looking for buildings, units, shops, churches, community centres, houses, rooms, and unique spaces to house outworks during Brent Biennial 2022 edition.

We are looking for spaces to house art works for the whole biennial OR to use as an event space for more short-term projects.


  • We are looking at spaces in Willesden, Harlesden, Kilburn & St. Raphael’s/Wembley
  • Brent Biennial 2022 will run from Friday 8 July – Sunday 11 September, so your space must be available during these dates. We must have exclusive use of the space during this time.
  • Are you a Brent-based business? We can offer an 80% reduction in business rates for the period of the temporary use of the space.

Does this sound like you or a space you know? There are no restrictions for which type of place we are interested in, whether this be a small or large space, we’d love for you to reach out.

If you would like to get involved, or have a chat to discuss your space, please get in touch with sorcha@metrolandcultures.com.

This is an exciting opportunity to engage with a borough-wide cultural project. Brent Biennial 2020 was the largest arts event to take place in Brent since the Festival of Brent in 1992, with over 125,000 people seeing free and accessible artworks in libraries, streets and other places of everyday life around the borough. We are hoping that the upcoming 2022 edition will be even bigger and will attract even more people.
