Lewisham Arthouse is a 25 year old artist-run cooperative based in South East London. It houses an eclectic group of cultural practitioners whose work spans sculpture, painting, experimental sound, sculpture, set design, textile, social practice, printmaking, photography and beyond. Continuing our commitment to support emerging artists, we are very pleased to announce the 10th round of our Graduate Studio Award Scheme and invite all recent London-based (or those relocating) graduate visual artists to apply.
The award offers recent graduates a fantastic, free opportunity to continue developing their practice in a 200ft studio based within our artist-led cooperative. The scheme encourages the selected artist to utilise our facilities, participate in and draw on our lively community to produce and present new work. Towards the end of the scheme, the awardee will be invited to share the outcomes of the residency in a form of their choosing (past awardees have hosted events, presented exhibitions, symposium and even organised gigs).
We work to support artists, their audiences and wider communities; providing platforms and occasions for encounter, learning and making. The Arthouse provides artist studios, bookable space and specialist workshops, a programme of events and exhibitions as well as regularly contributing to local initiatives.
