Our story so far…

Eastville Project Space was founded in 2015 by Stephen Ives and Zoe Li and is supported by a voluntary Advisory Group. We initially  located at Throne House, Eastville in Yeovil, offering a creative hub for artistic collaboration. We work with artists and creatives across digital, music and visual arts to develop and produce innovative projects that are relevant to their audiences. In the last few years, we have provided a public programme including exhibitions, events and workshops in Yeovil and future afield.

Eastville Project Space aims to:

  • Create a hub for artists at local, national and international levels to develop new work in a supportive and stimulating environment.
  • Encourage artistic and curatorial collaborations between artists, audiences and Eastville Project Space.
  • Support the development of socially engaging practices. Develop work that has a strong reflection of place and people.
  • Strengthen the arts and cultural infrastructure in Yeovil and Somerset through new projects that engage with artistic communities and audiences in a unique social landscape.

In 2018, we moved from Thorne House due to re-development. Since, Zoe have been busy working with a group of artists to develop Yeovil Art Space, which became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in May 2020 and occupied Unit 23 Vicarage Walk in Quedam Shopping Shopping Centre, focusing on visual art and community events.

Unit 29 Vicarage Walk now became home of EPS Yeovil, offering music, record, books, vintage clothing, retro items, as well as regular events and performance. Managed by Stephen, EPS Yeovil brings interest of music to the town.
