g39 is home to Wales’ largest artist-run gallery and creative community for the visual arts. Established in Cardiff, g39 became a charity in 2019 and works as a bridge between communities, the public and artists. Artists are at the heart of g39’s activities. From residencies to training and mentoring, informal gatherings, or realising the most ambitious of exhibitions – our aim is to encourage and enable every person whose ambition it is to pursue a visual art practice.


There are lots of ways you can support g39 and our programme,
without it costing you anything.

We’ve joined easyfundraising. Basically, if you shop online but through their portal, they donate a % to us. From Screwfix to ebay, Ethical Superstore to durex you can do your bit. Or if you’re driving to Cardiff and are going to pay for parking, why not book our carpark on Justpark with us?

You can donate at any time too through our new Donorfy account, or tapping a card on the donation point at g39, or just dropping some coins in the donation boxes next time you visit. It’s always uncomfortable asking for donations when there are so many many things to support out there - but all of this helps keep our resources and support programmes free for those that need them.

This website was born back in 2006, and although it’s wearing some fancy new fonts it still struggles sometimes.

If there are problems, let us know and we’ll try to fix them while we fundraise for a new one.

g39 is a registered charity, Reg no. 1181492, and we rely on a lot of different helping hands. If you want to support us, please donate, or you can help by visiting the market. We are always grateful for volunteer support too.

If you want to engage with us in Welsh you can switch from any page by clicking on the link above. If you're a learner, bydd newid rhwng y ddau yn ffordd dda o ymarfer - flipping between the two is a good way to practice. You can contact us in either English neu Gymraeg. Sign up to be kept up to date by post or email.

warp Library

When we're open again (!) the warp Library is open, a de-instututional resource for all. The collection mainly houses artist books, arts-related reference books, zines and pamphlets. These span from the socio-political to the experimental, from 60s avant-garde retrospectives to contemporary exhibition publications; and hopefully everything in between. This in an ever-developing, growing collection.
