Creative Land Trust

London’s creative economy, worth an estimated £47 billion every year, is at risk because of a loss of studio facilities. The Creative Land Trust has been established to secure long term, affordable space for artists and creatives, ensuring a vibrant and prosperous future for this critical industry, enriching communities and strengthening our city.

Culture at Risk Business Support Fund distributes over £1.5m to support 82 creative studios across London.

Over the past two months Creative Land Trust and the Mayor of London have been working to distribute £1.5m of emergency funding to support creative industries suffering due to the impact of COVID 19. Today, the 9th of July 2020, we announced that funding has been awarded to 82 artists studios across 18 London boroughs. These include emerging and established providers supporting fine artists, dancers, ceramicists and musicians.

“I know from the many meetings I have with artists that there is a real fear that the decline in affordable creative workspaces will result not just in artists not being able to find space to work but a city without a vibrant cultural and creative sector.”
