Creative talent needs room to thrive. Of course, after almost two decades of creating spaces to think, collaborate, work and play, that’s something we’re aware of here at Soho House. So, we can fully get behind the mission of London-based creative arts charity, Sarabande Foundation, which provides studio spaces, scholarships and mentorship for artists of all kinds.
Set up by the visionary late designer Lee Alexander McQueen in 2006 to support creatives in various fields from jewellery, fashion and textile design to art, performance art and film, the foundation has been nurturing talent and providing mentorship to scores of people ever since.
Following the announcement of the opening of Sarabande Foundation’s new London studio spaces on Tottenham’s High Road yesterday, that influence is set to grow – and you might just have a chance to get in on the ground floor.
The foundation has extended the deadline for applications to its studios – all of which are heavily subsidised – until 15 August.
Priced at just £1 per sq ft per month, studios range in size from 50 to 350 sq ft. Successful applicants also receive bespoke business mentoring, networking opportunities and pro-bono support from expert accountants and lawyers – alongside the invaluable experience of being part of a handpicked community of established and emerging artists.
Applications are open to artists of all disciplines at every stage of their career. Apply here.
