Patrick Studios

St Mary’s Lane,

Leeds LS9 7EH.

Patrick Studios is a bespoke venue for artists and provides up to 34 quality studio spaces, resource areas, a double height Project Space and the office and headquarters of East Street Arts. It is unique as it addresses artists’ need for structured support outside of academic institutions and fosters an ethos of professional development. It is a place for artists who endeavour to be professional in their chosen discipline and it is expected that a reciprocal culture will evolve where by new relationships and collaborations are established and careers can flourish.

The Project Space hosts a range of events and residencies aimed at offering artists opportunities to generate new ideas and develop new work; and audiences opportunities to meet artists and engage with work in progress.
