Aller Aller (formerly Aller Park Studios) is a contemporary art project produced by artists Josie Cockram and Keiko Yamamoto. Founded in 2019 on the Dartington Trust estate in Devon, we present workshops, film screenings, talks and live performances. Public events are conversational rather than presentational – sharing work we love, work in progress and thinking out loud. The programme is ambitious and experimental, welcoming local and international artists and performers, and open to all.

Our public programme was suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic and the project is now recalibrating and evolving. We hope to be back soon with events at Dartington and nearby.

In the meantime, we’ve founded an artist reading room and we’re gathering possibilities within this community for new artist-led conversations, workshops and resources.
