The Yard joins the Studio Providers Network (south) . . .
The Studio Providers Network South (SPNS) is an informal group of organisations that provide affordable studio provision to start up and mid-level creative businesses.
13 studio providers are part of the network and this is set to grow as the economy does.
The primary phase of the network was to collate a directory of all studio provision in the area. This is the tool for artists and organisations to source information on studio provision in south Hampshire.
The directory is an online document that is accessible to artists making sourcing the right studio for your practice easy.
For Organisations its a forum in which knowledge is shared and networks cemented, ultimately making the sector stronger and more sustainable. With quarterly meetings the network meet with key speakers and grow their knowledge.
Our aim is to provide a strong platform to grow creative talent in South Hampshire.
Instigating the network has been supported by Arts Council England and PUSH as both organisations recognise the importance of the sector.
