Become a Sarabande Artist!

OUR STUDIOS - Sarabande studios are more than just a studio space. They are a place of community and collaboration where the unique vision of each artist is supported. Being a part of Sarabande does not only guarantee a heavily subsidised studio space but also communication with leading journalists, curators, collectors, fashion designers, artists and photographers - all eager to know about your creative discipline, vision, and bring you to the forefront of the public eye.

With business mentoring, pro-bono support from expert accountants and lawyers, networking opportunities and with added support in press, marketing, filming and documentation.

The studios range from 50sq. ft to 350sq. ft and are priced at £1 per sq. ft per month. The cost includes all utilities, use of communal spaces & equipment, free professional services, mentoring and free access to all events at the foundation.


Applications for the studio residency programme 2024-2025 are now open.

Lee Alexander McQueen CBE established Sarabande with the ambition to support the most creatively fearless minds of the future.
