We Made That

We Made That have undertaken a study on behalf of the Mayor of London and the Greater London Authority (GLA) in order to better understand the picture of affordable studio provision for artists in London. The study is the first step in creating a list of all London’s Artist Studios on the Mayor’s ‘London.Gov’ website in form of an interactive map and aims to give an accurate picture of current supply to help the GLA understand future demands around affordable space.
Through interviews and online data collection, the report identified that up to 3500 artists’ workspaces are under threat in the five years from 2014 due to development pressures. On the basis of this, the report argues that more must be done to support artists’ workspace if London is to maintain its creative and cultural credentials.
