Wembley Park is passionate about supporting artists and creating a vibrant community. That’s why it’s so exciting to have partnered with leading London social enterprise company and membership organisation Second Floor Studios & Arts, to create a full house of amazing artists working, creating and collaborating right in the centre of the neighbourhood.
Affordable studios for local artists
Working artists have had it tough over recent years with rising rents and thousands of creative spaces and artists studios lost all over London. For over 20 years, Second Floor Studios & Arts haven’t just been trying to give artists back their much-needed studio spaces at affordable prices, they have also built a supportive environment that celebrates advocacy, innovation and shared knowledge. Artists take part in the Wembley Studios’ exhibition programme to showcase their work and the residents of Wembley Park and Brent get to take a look behind the scenes with the annual Open Studios programme where you can see what the artists are up to and even buy an original piece of art from a local artist to display at home.
Artists giving back to Wembley Park
As part of the way that Second Floor Studios offers affordable artist studio space, each studio member participates in the Shared Skills Time Bank community project. Artists pledge their time and share their knowledge with members of the local community in Wembley Park and across Brent through art classes, workshops and mentoring.
