RESET//is a platform that aims to provide opportunities for emerging artists that are from working-class backgrounds. Created in 2019 and run by Raen Barnsley, a contemporary artist from a working-class background, RESET// was born from zero funding and hopes to bring together a community of individuals with similar experiences within the arts.

RESET// has just begun. As it progresses, develops, and builds its foundational audience, the aim will be to provide exhibiting opportunities and art materials as well as the ongoing, digital platform opportunities such as interviews, Instagram Takeovers, and a place to have written work read by others.

RESET's open calls are free to submit to, allowing those with a lower financial capability to apply.
