Established in 2019 as a creative hub for contemporary performance, and re-organised in 2020 as a cultural lab, MakeTank aims to provide artistic and cultural education, engagement and experience to the communities of Exeter, Devon and wider region, by positioning art and culture at the heart of placemaking and urban regeneration through creativity and play.  


Our mission is to generate culture that moves people and changes places.


We aim to leverage the power of arts and culture to serve as a catalyst for cultural, community and urban development.


Working collaboratively with other artistic, cultural, community and local authority organisations, MakeTank provides support and advocacy for cultural activity, while pro-actively encouraging and providing facilities and services for research and development of artistic and cultural practices that foster greater diversity, inclusion, creativity, wellbeing and social growth in local communities.


Our three main pillars are experimentation, education, civic engagement. We believe in the civic role of artists and that through collaboration,  experimentation and education communities can have a strong collective voice for inclusive growth in the city. We see artists as powerful agents of change who help build vibrant and dynamic communities.
