About Us

PS² = Paragon Studios / project space -[pssquared], is a small artist collective, with studio space in the centre of Belfast.
Alongside the provision of studio spaces, PS² organises a project space, a platform for art projects and cultural activities which often includes community engaged projects in neighbourhoods and fringe sites in the city and further afield.
The focus of PS² is on urban intervention and social interaction by artists and cultural practitioners, architects, multidisciplinary groups and theorists. Experiment and risk, social relevance and artistic quality are key elements of a diverse programme; from installations to projects with communities, classes, talks, curatorial residencies and research.
PS² is run on a voluntary, non-commercial base, currently supported by funding from the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council's project funding.

Projects are initiated and organised by Peter Mutschler together with Ruth Morrow as curatorial adviser. Increasingly more often, curators are invited to plan and organise projects.
We are always keen and open for proposals. Please send project ideas with a short outline and few images or links
to us- see contact.

Studio artists: Aisling O'Beirn, Peter Mutschler, Michael Hogg, Bill Saunders, Dougal McKenzie, Paul Moore, Mitch Conlon and Emily McFarland.
