academic texts, we've had a weekly comedy series on Youtube and we've produced a music review blog as well as knocking out loads of our own music, we've done various other things too but we believe we're not even started and that the world needs to see a lot more of us.
The Gate is open to anyone who needs it and has a regular timetable but there's loads that goes on around that too. We also know when it's time to just drop tools and chill and have a coffee and a chat though.
We welcome visitors and are proud of our little arts collective and love to big ourselves up so should anyone wish to check us out or think they might have something to contribute then please get in touch.
You can catch us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
