SET is a multifaceted arts and community organisation based in numerous centres across London. SET curates an eclectic and experimental arts programme alongside affordable artist workspace.

SETprojects includes performances, live music, exhibitions, talks, workshops and screenings, and seeks to provide a platform for new and collaborative projects. With an inclusive ethos always, SET is a community which aims to bridge gaps between disciplines, creating a platform for collaboration and multidisciplinary experimentation.

SET is currently home to over 100 artists and has a membership of over 500. SET hosts artists working in a variety of practices and disciplines from text, performance and installation to music, sound, print, textiles and more.

The SET Alscot Road project space is home to our exhibition programme, whilst SET Dalston hosts our social space & bar and our performance space & music venue. Each SET centre is home to a variety of artists workspaces: from desk space to light industrial units. Former SET centres include 7th Floor Capstan House, The Greenwich Pensioner and Masons Yard in Westminster.

Each SET centre is hosted in otherwise vacant property, some temporary and some long term. SET brings disused space back into positive use in the interim period: see ‘Property Management’ for further information.

SET was founded in 2016 with the aim of curating an expansive programme of experimental arts & educational projects, functioning as a platform for new and underrepresented practices whilst providing affordable workspace for diverse and dedicated artists.

In late 2016, SET officially became a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). Over the past 3 years, SET has opened 8 centres in London and has blossomed into a network of supportive communities.

We are home to some of the most exciting and distinctive artistic productivity the city has to offer. In collaboration with our members and communities local to each centre, SET has created a diverse programme of self-driven initiatives.
