Why

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.

How

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.

Join us for a presentation of the interim findings of research project ‘Taking Up Space’ delivered by freelance researcher Khloe Bailey Obazee. The research looks at mapping the diversity of artists in London’s studio spaces and suggests recommendations for change in order to have a more equal and inclusive studio sector.
