Get involved at Un Deg Un – Wrexham’s New Pop Up Art Space

A new pop up Arts Centre will be opening in two weeks’ time in the former JJB Sports Shop in Wrexham. Called ‘Un Deg Un’ (‘eleven’ in Welsh, as it’s situated at 11 Regent Street), the space has exhibition and event space, space for artists studios and will be a great town-centre meeting place where you can pop in for a coffee, and make use of the social space.

The centre is there for the use of everyone within Wrexham’s Creative Community, and as well as being a useable space, there’s lots of opportunities to get involved in the action, and help shape the future of the project.
These opportunities include:

Renting a Studio Space

From next week (week commencing 15th July) we’ll have 5 Studio Spaces ready to go. These spaces are rentable from around £15 per week (with 4 weeks deposit), but as we’re working hard towards the opening, if you’d be prepared to lend a hand helping us out, then the first month will be free!

Get Involved with the management and running of the centre

There are limited opportunities to get on board to experience and support the running of a large scale community arts project. This is a perfect chance for those who want to get involved in arts management as a career to get some real hands on experience.


There are multiple opportunities to exhibit within the space, which can easily contain small private or group exhibitions right through to large scale shows.

Social Space

If you’re looking to get together with friends, clients or just have a group discussion about your next piece of collaborative art work, then we have a great social space. Refreshments are available on-site for a donation so just come in, relax and make yourself at home!

Meeting, Practice & Rehearsal Space

All types of groups, whether it be a band or a choir, a drama group or a knitting circle need a place to meet, or rehearse. Maybe Un Deg Un could be that place for you?


If you have a few hours a month to spare and would like to get involved join our team of Invigilators. Great for those who enjoy interacting with the public, and helping out with the day to day running of the centre, which is so important to allow everything else to work smoothly.


We’re looking to establish a programme of events running from September so if you have an arts or music related event in mind that would suit an unusual venue, then this could be your chance. We’re happy to work within anyone who has a good idea, so tell us what you’re thinking and we could help support the set-up of your event.
So does any of that sound like it’s for you? We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to work with, who can gain experience in various roles, from invigilation to management experience; people who want to hold events; or just people that are keen to get involved with a new and unique initiative.

Anyone interested, please let us know:
