As an artist-led gallery, project space and studio, Stew is housed in an old handbag factory in the centre of Norwich, England.
The name is derived from the shared ideal of food playing a central role in the space and is akin to the diverse practices within the building.

It provides space to hold discussion around the dinner table on what is happening in the space and beyond.
Stew is a non-profit, volunteer-run organisation.
