Leegate Studios

Alongside our new creative workspace offer in Catford, Bow Arts has opened further affordable artists and designers studios in the Leegate Centre in Lee.  Working with the support of the developer St Modwens, this site has space for 38 individual practitioners in ex office space within Leegate House.

 

Studios

Each studio benefits from being a lockable self-contained space with large windows and 24/7 access.  Our thriving and varied artistic community can be located on the 5th, 6th and 7th floor.  The studios that are available range from 149 sqft at £198.83 per month to 226 sqft at £288.67 per month.  The studios are close to local amenities or alternatively a short bus ride to Lewisham Town Centre.  There is also a free car park only a few minutes away.

 

Shop Units

*Leegate Open Call*

There are 3 ex-shop units that are available. These are suitable for varying practices and we are quite open to discussion about how this could work. For a few examples of where Bow Arts has filled similar spaces please see information on our Aberfeldy Shop Units in East London. We are holding an Open Call to look for artists interested in using these spaces and engaging with the local community. Our only criteria would be that the front is opened up and so the use and occupation of the space is visible and thus adding to the life of the space in our time there. Apart from this there is huge flexibility with what could go on here. To list some ideas these would be perfect for groups of artists, collectives, more workshop based work, public realm based practices, artists who would like to run a project or exhibition space, the list goes on and we look forward to hearing some ideas from new artists about these spaces!

 We would like artists, designers and makers to submit brief proposals of any kind, but please ensure you have registered with us beforehand here: http://bowarts.org/studios/register-here.

 

This is an exciting opportunity for artists and designers in the area to work together in one location. The available spaces have got good natural light, are secure and we will create a communal kitchen area for artists to congregate.

As with all our studio sites, we will be supporting these spaces with Open Studio events and linking artists in these spaces to our opportunities that we promote throughout the year.
