Associate Studio Programme 5 : Stockwell 2018

The CSM Associate Studio Programme, in partnership with Acme, opened its first studio in the Glassyard Building, in Stockwell, south west London in 2013.

The tenure of the current, second, group of Associates at the Glassyard studio comes to an end in September 2018. Applications are now being invited from 2017 and 2018 graduates from CSM’s BA Fine Art for the next programme, running from October 2018-20.

The CSM Associate Studio Programme provides a supportive environment without simply extending the ‘comfort zone’ of the college experience. The emphasis is on the creation of a mixed but cooperative community of emerging artists, who, at the point of joining the scheme, have already made a commitment to continuing a professional practice. On this basis the scheme provides a very affordable route into a professional studio space in a mutually supportive environment and underpinned by a programme of collective dialogue and mentoring involving professional artists and academics.

The programme offers a space in a new-build, accessible, secure and self-contained ground floor shared open-plan space of around 1,300 sq.ft for a group of eight graduates from BA Fine Art at CSM. This space is located within a larger studio development occupied by 30 Acme professional artists and is built to a high specification; with natural light, three meter high ceilings, lighting, power, heating, internet access, shared wash-up and WC facilities and 24-hour access. Tenancy with Acme Studios is for two years, at half the standard rate – an average weekly rent for each artist of approximately £22 per week. The programme includes a programme of studio visits by artists, curators and writers.

The programme is now open to applications from current Central Saint Martins BA Fine Art students graduating this year, and those that graduated in 2017.

Application deadline 10am Monday 11 June 2018.

There will be a Q&A session with Graham Ellard for those interested in applying on Wednesday 16 May, 2pm, in the Lecture Theatre (E002) at Central Saint Martins, Granary Square, Kings Cross.
To ensure access to the building 2017 graduates who would like to attend must rsvp by 5pm Monday 14 May to, with the subject line – CSM Associate Studio Programme 2018 Meeting.

The 2018 programme runs from 1 October 2018 until September 30 2020.
