We are the artist studio provider of choice for emerging artists. We recognise both the needs and economies of recent graduates and artists at the early stages of their careers and reflect this in the provision of our artist studios and LiveWork accommodation. We also offer opportunities to artists through our employment of artist educators and opportunities to exhibit, showcase their work and engage with other professionals.
We have a solid 15 year track record of providing affordable workspace for a wide range of visual artists and creative practitioners.
Both artists and communities are at the heart of our business, and by joining Bow Arts you will benefit from, and directly contribute to, one of the most exciting artists’ communities in London. We currently manage over 100,000 sq ft of artist studios and LiveWork accommodation for approximately 400 artists, in over 250 studios in four sites in East and South East London. We also manage over 70 LiveWork flats across 8 sites in east London, in the heart of what is becoming London’s Artist Quarter.
Our studio costs to artists have, over the past decade, been consistently low within the affordable studio sector. Our studios cost to artists is around a third of that charged for similar spaces in the commercial sector. Our LiveWork flats are, on average, less than half the cost of a privately rented flat in the same area.
For landlords, whether private, local authority, housing assocation or other, we are the ethical property solution. We combine our excellent track record in property management with a business model that creates positive community benefits for those property owners seeking to improve their community remit.
