VU is an artist-run centre which since 1981 has been dedicated to the development of the photographic image. VU provides artists working in every discipline, without the need for submitting a proposal, a professional, archival-quality digital ink-jet printing service and high-definition digitising of negatives and slides. Cutting-edge digital equipment and secure individual darkrooms with proper ventilation are available for rent. An experienced technician provides the artist with technical advice throughout the process.
The VU centre is located in the main Meduse building. This building hosts several art organisations which offer residencies.
