Studios

ASC is one of the UK’s biggest charities managing artist studios, we provide space to over 700 artists across nine London sites.

To get a studio, you must be a practicing artist – this now includes applied artists and small creative industries.

Please note demand is high so there is a waiting list, which you can join here.

Rents vary from building to building, but they are always much lower than commercial market value. In most cases the rent includes: electricity; business and water rates; building insurance and service charges. Where possible, we also try to provide free WIFI. ASC does not charge a registration fee.

In 2019 ASC launched our recent graduate scheme, offering workspaces in our Brixton, Croydon and Rotherhithe studios at reduced and subsidised rents for artists, designers and makers who have graduated in the last 3 years.

We also offer workspace, along with a free advice service on all property matters, to charitable and not-for-profit organisations.

If you’re interested in office space for charitable and not-for-profit organisations, please email julia.rees@ascstudios.co.uk.
