London-based Acme Studios is England’s leading affordable artists’ studio developer and provider. Formed by recent art school graduates in 1972 the organisation has been led by Jonathan Harvey and David Panton since its inception. Acme has expanded considerably over the last few years, securing major new-build permanent studio developments which have contributed to the organisation’s sustainability. The organisation now operates for the first time without the need for public funding or additional fundraising for its core activity of studio provision.
It was announced in April that, after 44 years, Jonathan Harvey, Acme Studios’ Chief Executive, will be standing down and Acme’s board is therefore seeking a new Chief Executive to take up the post from January 2016.
The new post holder will build on the success of the organisation in response to the increasing demand for, and continuing challenge of providing, affordable, high-quality and sustainable space to support artists in economic need. Acme’s board is looking to appoint a Chief Executive with proven leadership skills who will respond to the challenge of supporting artists’ creative risk taking with passion and imagination.
Acme Studios is an equal opportunities employer.
