Sarabande opens new studio space in Tottenham
Sarabande is opening a new studio and exhibition in Tottenham, north London, to support more artists, craftsmen and designers.
The foundation will open Sarabande High Road with 15 new subsidised studios later this year as part of Paxton17, the new creative quarter in Tottenham.
Sarabande was set up by the late designer, Lee Alexander McQueen, who left the majority of his estate to support creative and visionary talent.
Sarabande has mentored more than 130 creatives from 31 countries since it began in Haggerston, east London, bringing together fashion designers, jewellers, textile designers, painters, performance artists, silversmiths, costume designers, ceramicists, sculptors, dancers, photographers, digital designers and visual artists.
The foundation acts as a creative business accelerator, as well as providing free space for the artists to exhibit, to sell from, and to extend their practice.
In Tottenham, Sarabande will fill two Grade II* listed townhouses with new studios, each let at around £1 per square foot to artists and designers.
Applications for the studio programme at Sarabande High Road or Haggerston are now open for applications.
To fully benefit from the residency, Sarabande recommends candidates apply once they are at a pivotal point in their career.
The deadline for applications has been extended to 15th August 2022.
