I’m an artist because I want to be free.
— Laurie Anderson
Fortunately, somewhere between chance and mystery lies imagination, the only thing that protects our freedom, despite the fact that people keep trying to reduce it or kill it off altogether.
— Luis Buñel

Roaming Room is a mobile gallery space. Imaginative, unusual, contemporary artwork is installed in dilapidated or unused buildings, and artists drawing on the character of those buildings to shape their art itself. 

Created and run by directors Sandie Macrae and Aideen Morgan, Roaming Room works with up-and-coming as well as more established artists to create exhibitions whereby artists, working in a range of mediums, engage and intervene directly with the space.
