Leegate Studios

Alongside our new creative workspace offer in Catford, Bow Arts has now opened further affordable artists and designers studios in the Leegate Centre in LeeGreen this July.

Working with the support of the developer St Modwens, this will site has space for around 50 individual practioners in ex office space within the Leegate Shooping Centre and Leegate House.

Studios

Studios start at small spaces of 80 sqft, up to large spaces of 470 sqft. The majority of the spaces are around 200 sqft, at less than £230 per calendar month or around £50 per week.

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!

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.
