The Fat Publication: Open Studios in Context

Are you open? Whatever guise the studio takes, from large scale, global warehouses spanning countries and continents that employ a team of assistants to smaller established or emerging studio groups housed in owned, rented, permanent or temporary spaces to more intimate domestic environments, artists and designers still want to use and occupy studio spaces.


The East Street Arts Open Studios Toolkit

Since our first Open Studios in 2012, we have been researching and visiting other events and looking at good practice so that we can continue to develop and improve our own event. We have been holding professional development workshops in the run up to this year’s Open Studios and information and discussions from those sessions have informed this toolkit. We hope the toolkit will: Help you prepare for this year’s Open Studios. Help you to think about what East Street Arts Open Studios look like and how we might continue to develop them in future years.
