SET provides affordable studios to artists and projects on an open-call basis. We host a wide array of practices and disciplines and select artists, performers, writers and musicians from diverse backgrounds, who can contribute to a vibrant studio community and our public programme of arts and educational events. If you are interested in SET studios, please sign up to our mailing list and check above for studio news.
All artists joining the SET community become Associate Members of SET. Members are required to contribute to the community – this can come in the form of participating in a project or running a workshop or class, or offering support, skills or services.
Studios at SET centres are as affordable as possible and prices include all bills and internet. All studio artists can book the project space for private projects when it is not in use for SET Projects. Studio members are also encouraged to propose public facing projects for the Members Programme.
