Focal Point Gallery specialises in contemporary visual art, promoting and commissioning ambitious solo exhibitions, group shows, thematic projects and a programme of public events including performances, film screenings and talks.

The organisation is dedicated to national and international developments in visual culture, and in increasing access to the visual arts through its' community, schools and education programme.

The gallery currently produces up to seven solo exhibitions each year, as well as working on a residency programme and a variety of offsite projects. Artists are given a platform to make new work in response to the gallery's unique space on the second floor of Southend Central Library.

The exhibitions, events and education programmes are currently being developed to include a series of activities that will host a diverse range of local and international artists, curators and writers, and establish ongoing collaborations with local and international arts organisations as well as engaging with a wide range of local community groups.
