We provide free project spaces and studios for artists by matching creatives with vacant shops to regenerate our high streets.

We're still collecting donations

On the 9th March 2021 we'd raised £2,131 with 34 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Your money will help us pay for the necessary lawyers, insurers and most importantly, it will enable us to take on more team members, such as an artist liaison and full time property manager for the first few months while we start processing the plentiful matches of spaces and artists.

We are growing rapidly and we need your help to make our ambitions manifest. We already have spaces lined up in Camden, Enfield, Worcester, Southend and beyond. We need your help to provide even more opportunities to let culture flourish in our empty town centres. 

Hypha Studios will be open to the public, creating a new form of engagement in the centre of our communities - whether it be live music/ exhibitions/ceramic classes/life drawings, the public will be able to attend the events and new spaces that are created.  

The studios will allow artists to sell work/ state entry fees or ticket prices at their discretion so that they can support  and develop their own careers. During Covid the studios will have recorded open days and performances. These will be launched on IGTV.

All of our profits go back into the Charity for education (after salaries) so in the future we will provide free career development and education programmes.

By supporting artists and creatives at a time of urgent need - we hope to act as a catalyst for a new generation of artists led urban regeneration across London and beyond. Industry experts predict that within 10 years London’s high streets will be leisure-led and feature very little retail  (CBRE MD Richard Smart 2021).  Time-limited interventions can create stimuli that change perceptions of an area and strengthen local economies

Let's fill our streets with artists.
