The Studios:

Based in Soho, London. (Just a 5 minute walk from Oxford Circus Station and a 9 minute walk from Piccadilly Circus Station)

Open 24 hours. All day everyday.

There are three 15m2 studios on a self contained floor.

The studios have windows and are well ventilated

The studios are located on the third floor. (Unfortunately there is no wheelchair access in the building)

There is a large communal ‘Project Space’ in the building next to the Studios that the artists can use to document their work or to develop a more ambitious piece.

The ‘Project Space’ can also be used to host an ‘End of Residency Show’. However there is no obligation to exhibit the works made during the residency.

The studios are currently being renovated in time for our April launch!


Residency Conditions:

Each artist will donate one artwork to our Patron who is funding the residency.

Duration of days for the residency: 1 month

Number of spaces per month : 3

We have allocated our budget towards incredible Central London studios and tuition. Unfortunately we will not be providing accommodation, expenses or air travel.
