To celebrate the work of artists on our Fire Station Work/Live Programme 5 (2015-2020), throughout each month of 2016 will feature a different artist on this ground-breaking programme.
In 2015 we featured pieces from recent graduates on a range of award programmes including Adrian Carruthers Studio Award, Chelsea Studio Award, CSM Associate Studio Programme, Goldsmiths Studio Award and the Helen Scott Lidgett Studio Award.
As 2014 was the final year of our Fire Station Work/Live Programme 4 (2012-2015), each month we featured a work by one of the 12 Fire Station artists who benefitted from this important and supportive scheme.
From January 2013, twelve works commissioned from current Acme artists, featured on our Home Page. The works, including new or already existing pieces, each connected in some way to what we do and/or to our 40th Anniversary and include a range of formats, from painting and photography to video and sound.

The LiteraryMix consists entirely of excerpts from works of fiction which describe sound and sonic events. These excerpts have been edited and arranged in such a way as to maintain a narrative thread by linking descriptions of sounds and themes related to reading and listening. Similar to the Choose Your Own Adventure series in which readers are offered choices as to what to read next, for inquisitive readers there is also a bibliography hidden somewhere inside. Through shifting points-of-view sympathetic to the narrative voice in each, such as location, time, and nominative case, readers are asked to consider listening to the sounds they read and imagine:

Between 1996 and 2012 Acme received £3.2m of capital funding from Arts Council England which supported the creation of six permanent affordable studios in London: Copperfield Road, Fire Station, Galleria, Harrow Road, Leven Road and Matchmakers Wharf. This resulted in 186 studios and 12 work/live units in four London boroughs.
