SPACE Studios is a charitable organisation that has been running for fifty years to provide affordable artist space across London and now to outer counties.
SPACE exists to enable artists to make innovative and ambitious work and to provide a supportive network in a changing urban environment.
Their vision is to provide space, resources and platforms for professional visual artists to develop their creative practice, and to enable audiences adjacent to our studio sites to benefit from encounters with professional artists.
Their mission is to support the resilience and sustainability of artists.
SPACE breaks new ground in Ilford
Building work has begun at the rear of the Town Hall to create a new art gallery and artists studios. SPACE, a leading visual arts organisation, is transforming the former lending library into a free public art gallery, complete with a new ramp entrance from the old car park on Clements Road. Inside the building, rooms are being partitioned to create space for 35 studios for artists in the Redbridge area.
Building work is due for completion by the end of September. Find out more about the studios on offer here.
