Become a Patron or Friend
Patrons & Friends play a vital role in supporting SPACE, so as to enable us to continue our core mission of supporting artists. Whilst the acute housing shortage in London has been widely reported, London is also facing a challenge with affordable artist studio provision. This is why we need your help.

By becoming a Patron or Friend at a critical time in SPACE’s history, you or your company will become part of a community that recognises and champions the importance of artists continuing to work in the capital and the belief that London needs artists. Most recently SPACE Patrons & Friends have supported Isobel Bedeau.
