The studios benefit from 24-hour access, a kitchenette, with the additional benefits of a very large screening/rehearsel/workshop room on the first floor, and a staffed bar on the ground floor. The studios are located in central Clapham, just off Clapham high-street (towards Battersea). studioSTRIKE is a small and friendly creative space for emerging and established artists. It lives on the top floor of the Bread and Roses, a former coach house now owned by the Workers Beer Company. Our landlords are the Battersea and Wandsworth Trade Union Council. studioSTRIKE took over the disused top floor of the building in July 2010. It’s now a professional community of 13 artists from a variety of disciplines working on their independent practices and coming together on a voluntary basis for special project


In 2012 studioSTRIKE organised an acclaimed multidisciplinary arts festival with Arts Council, Film London and BFI support. Foremost as this is a creative community, we are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic artist who can see the potential of working in a friendly and supportive environment and will use the space the best to it’s advantage.
