Acme Studios, supporting art and artists since 1972

National Support

Our advisory service is currently under review and we are not in a position to provide any support or advice at present.

Acme Studios has a long history of supporting the artists’ studio provider sector through advice, research and associated publications. Since the 1970s, Acme has been acutely aware of the need for organisations to pool resources and information.

Acme has consistently shared its experience with others on all aspects of the acquisition, development and management of affordable accommodation for artists. This has included individuals and groups of practitioners, studio organisations, local authorities, indeed all those with an interest in helping to develop affordable space for artists.

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.
