In spring 2017 Alchemy Film & Arts moved into a new office and exhibition space on Hawick High Street. At our new venue we’ll be hosting a year-round programme of exhibitions, events, workshops, meetings, featuring a range of local, national and international artists. During the festival, we use it as an installation venue, while the festival hub is the auditorium at Heart of Hawick.
