The WPG (Westbury People's Gallery) is an independent arts collective, entirely self-supported through communal effort, which has been holding a number of outdoor cultural events since 2020. WPG is independent of both state and corporate funding. We hold events and exhibitions in our unique Garden Gallery, which is located in Cowley, Oxford, UK. We are committed to creative expression as a right of all. Given the steady removal of community space by a profit centred local authority we believe that the use of even suburban garden space to encourage creativity has become essential. This does not excuse the council from supplying communal space for creativity but it does highlight the desperate need for such space.
All events and exhibitions at the WPG are free for the public to attend, and the garden gallery may be viewed outside the normal viewing times by appointment. We aim to open up creative practice in and around the local community and encourage an engagement with all the arts by all who are interested. We operate as an artists’ collective across all genres, where work and ideas are shared for mutual learning and support. Community work will be displayed alongside the work of collective members and anything submitted to us will be considered for display.
