Lambeth Council is seeking to appoint an artist-in-residence to move into FREE workspace at the Artists Studio Company (ASC) in Streatham Hill.
Earlier this year Lambeth Council agreed to help fund ASC’s acquisition of its site in Streatham Hill through the Future Workspace Fund and provided a grant of £200,000 through the first round of funding.
The council and ASC are now welcoming applications from Lambeth residents to become an Artist in Residence at ASC Streatham Hill and have a studio free of charge for two years.
“This is an excellent opportunity for local artists and innovators to focus on their work without the uncertainty that often comes from securing studio space, while cementing Lambeth’s place as a centre for creativity.”Counsellor Matthew Bennett
The £200,000 funding from Lambeth Council’s Future Workspace Fund helped ASC safeguard its site at Streatham Hill studio space and the affordable rents they provide here.
It means almost 60 artists will be offered workspace for between 30-50 percent below market rents for the next decade.
