East Street Arts has studios available across the UK. Our main sites are in Leeds but we also run temporary studios nationally.

Since 1993 we have recycled former offices, industrial units, shops and other empty spaces and transformed them into usable and unique spaces to host artists and other creatives.

Through purchasing buildings and long-term rental agreements we have placed sustainability and resilience at the core of our work.

In 2004, we purchased our first building, Patrick Studios, planting our roots in Leeds. In Leeds we now own two additional spaces: Convention House and The Art Hostel and we rent two spaces: Barkston Studios and Union 105.

All our venues host artists in studios, workshops, meeting spaces and social spaces making them feel at home and building long-lasting relationships and networks, nationally and internationally.
