Thamesmead Arts and Culture Office (TACO!) is an artist-led space for research, production, and exchange located in Thamesmead, SE London.  TACO! is engaged with its local context and centres the work and role of artists  in all the work it undertakes, supporting a dialogue between artists, audiences, community and place.

TACO!’s activities are experimental and collaborative. Invited artists are supported to research, develop and realise projects over a dedicated period of time. This research informs a public programme that includes exhibitions, events,  discussions, workshops, screenings, publishing, and co-authored participatory projects with local people and groups.  Projects initiated by artists vary in duration. We set an open timeframe with no set expectations on outcomes.  

TACO!  currently comprises of a gallery, bookshop and broadcast studio.  All of these platforms provide opportunities for artists to present and distribute work.

RTM.FM is run as a community radio station providng a platform for  people to broadcast their own content.  We also run training workshops in audio production and broadcasting. We are open to ︎proposals for broadcast shows. 

The bookshop provides a platform for independent publications, zines, vinyl and artist materials produced by publishers, small press, groups, galleries, and artist practitioners.  The Bookshop is open during exhibition periods, and available online.  We are open to submissions and proposals for both. Please read our guidelines ︎before sending us your titles, or email us with your enquiry -  info@taco.org.uk

The gallery programme is curated by TACO!  and is not open to submissions or proposals.
