Studios expose the rich diversity of artists practice, broker new relationships, collaborations and events and play a pivotal role in a city’s cultural and creative identity.

We offer artists affordable, diverse and managed studios based within active and inspiring environments. Over the last twenty years studios have remained a constant in the work we do in support of artists.

Studio holders are an important part of our community and we work hard to ensure we have the right kind of space for you. We welcome artists working across art forms and at different stages of their careers.

We currently have over 200 artists and groups working across our range of venues in the UK. In Leeds we host studios at Patrick Studios, Barkston Studios and Union 105, and in Gateshead Old Town Hall. In addition we have a variety of studios within our Temporary Space scheme.

Studio benefits include:

• Annual Open Studio event
• Professional development sessions
• Facilities and equipment
• 24 hour access

• Wireless broadband
