The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan announced his plans on 26th October to explore a Creative Land Trust to support artists' workspace in partnership with Outset as part of the Studiomakers initiative on the occasion of the opening of Somerset House Studios.
Launched in March 2016, Studiomakers aims to provide entrepreneurial solutions to retain existing and create new affordable artist workspaces in London. It looks to partner with the property industry - from local authorities to landownerss and private developers - in response to serious funding needs to provide artists, crafts people and other creatives with workspaces ensuring the ecosystem of the creative industry is kept secure in the long term. Studiomakers works with studio providers specialised in the field to oversee tenancy and operation of these workspaces.
The initiative is led by Outset Contemporary Art Fund in association with its founding partners Mayor of London, Second Home, Create London, PLP Architecture and Bolton & Quinn.
