Artists Studio Company (ASC) is a London based registered charity founded in 1995. Our core aims are to support artists and makers, promote the arts and educate the public in the arts.

In answer to our aims ASC:


And manages ‘affordable’ workspace for artists, makers and arts organisations.


Communities in outreach activities with educational programmes, working with schools, colleges and youth groups.


Public art exhibitions and events.


Business support to our tenants through training, mentoring and grant funding.

We are the leading affordable workspace provider to artists and makers in London. We currently support over 650 practitioners and to date we have managed a total of 22 buildings.

We continue to play a major role supporting London’s creative talent, nurturing thousands of individuals and making a huge positive change to the capitals cultural landscape.

We are very proud that a great many of our tenants have gone on to become household names. However we place greater value and believe deeply in fostering communities and in reaching out to people who might never have engaged in art.

We seek to support creative people of all practices and backgrounds. We strongly believe art can only be truly relevant when it is open to all.

Our team has decades of experience developing and managing affordable workspace for the creative sector. They understand the needs of artists and makers because many of our staff trained as artists and makers or are practicing artists and makers themselves.

Most of the ASC team have been with the organisation for many years. We are proud to be an accredited London Living Wage employer.
