It is with deep regret that after 7 years Southwark Studios closed at the end of January 2016.
We provided hundreds of creative people with a place to work since 2009 but our building is now to be demolished as part of redevelopment of the area.
Unfortunately a massive 50% of all artists studios in Southwark have closed within the last year. Closures on this scale are happening across London, causing a real crisis for creative workspace providers like Southwark Studios.
Our situation is regrettably very normal for the artists studio sector at a time of quickly rising land values in London. In response we have spent the last two years raising awareness of the problems facing studio providers, giving talks to local councils and meeting members of the Greater London Authority.
This has culminated with Southwark Studios having a good chance of being offered a new home as part of the redevelopment of our current location. After a break to build the new complex, we hope to be back on site to launch the new, permanent Southwark Studios.
