Providing affordable, flexible, friendly, safe creative workspace for artists, makers, designers, and other creative practices is at the heart of what we do.
"Bow Arts incubated my new business and was there for me when the chips were up as well as down, Bow Arts provided a vital platform for me and I have gone from grassroots to turning a healthy profit, even a nomination for Architectural Digest design awards is in the bag!"
– Kit Miles, Designer
We know from our ongoing conversations with those using our studios that as well as the physical space, being in an environment with other artists and having access to opportunities such as Open Studios, peer networks, and other ways of accessing knowledge sharing and work opportunities are very important. With this in mind, we strive to make all our studios open busy creative environments where easy access to other artists is built into the design and ethos of how we operate.
Cost is a critical factor for artists, especially in London, and we have continued to keep our studios at the lower end of the affordable studio sector. Flexibility and clear, simple contracts are also important, as artists' needs change and we are able to help individuals manage that change. We understand that individual artists' needs are varied and within our portfolio of spaces we have a range of different sizes and styles of studio spaces to meet the requirements of most practices.
