As of April 2016, Visiting Arts takes up office space at Somerset House Exchange in London – joining over 100 organisations operating within the creative industries, as part of a unique community environment that supports growth and collaboration.
Somerset House is developing a new sustainable model for running an arts and cultural centre in London without requiring regular funding from government but capable of providing a new cultural legacy for future generations. The restoration of the buildings around the fountain court will provide public access to all the wings at ground level and the upper levels are being converted into workspaces suited for the creative industries, now occupied by a growing community of cultural entrepreneurs.
Studio spaces are also being made available for a number of artists and designers in residence to encourage makers, stimulate creativity on the site and create a platform for their work to be shown to the public.
We look forward to being a part of this dynamic creative community and encourage you to take advantage of the wide range of artistic activities and opportunities at this historic London venue. Visit www.somersethouse.org.uk for more details.
