Acme, supporting artists since 1972

Advocacy, Advice & Consultancy

Acme supports the wider artists’ studio provider sector through advocacy, advice, research and associated publications. We also regularly draw on our rich experience to undertake demand and feasibility studies and advise other organisations on the provision of artist studios and affordable space.

Since the 1970s, Acme has worked to consistently share our experience with others. This has included individuals and groups of practitioners, studio organisations, local authorities and any other actor with an interest in helping to develop affordable space for artists. Our advice is offered to artists for free. In order to support this service, we advise others on a fee-paid basis.

Acme research and advice can be found in Publications.

National Housing Federation member | NFASP member | Supported using public funding by Arts Council England

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.
