Artists' studios creating public benefit in Nottingham, NFASP case study, 2007

Oldknows studio space

Resource Details: 

This case study looks at two Nottingham-based studio groups, Oldknows Studio Group and Egerton Studios, both small-scale organisations, voluntarily run and operating as unincorporated groups.
By looking in depth at the activities of some of the artists based at these two studio organisations, this study demonstrates that artists in receipt of an affordable studio can gain the support, confidence and security that enables them to participate in cultural life and provide a range of important public benefits.

The study, by Michael Cubey for NFASP, also shows the vulnerability of the sector as the leases for both groups were due to expire within two years.
