We aim to create
a strong voice
for the creative
workspace sector


Studio providers, artist-led groups and creative co-working spaces have been financially impacted by Covid-19, and it is essential the sector is well positioned to ensure stability long term.

The financial hardship that artists are currently facing may result in long term losses, not only economically, but also in terms of the artist community and ecology that our workspaces support.


The objective of the network is to learn how to shape future support for both studio providers, studio groups and their artists. Our first task was to produce Guidelines for re-opening under Covid-19. This document is a work in progress which will grow as more organisations join the network. It has been written as a signpost document to support and encourage how the sector can re open. Our next task is to look at the economic and social impact of our organisations in our towns and cities across the country, so join the conversation.

Please join our network by signing up to our mailing list:

The network will be formerly launched on 14 September, 10.30am via the CVAN ‘Power of Art’ webinar looking at studio providers.

Booking via Eventbrite will follow shortly.
