Hypha Studios is a charity that matches creatives with empty spaces to regenerate the high street through the formation of cultural hubs with programming to engage local communities.
By providing free studios and project rooms we act as an incubator for artistic talent to conceive of new ideas by removing financial obstacles to creativity, and crucially, we provide opportunities to those that could not previously access this level of support or visibility.
We envision a world where anyone can access culture on their doorstep. Every placement includes a mentoring session for the selected artist and the creation of a public program that directly engages with local communities, generating new footfall- which in turn will benefit existing local businesses.
If the future of our increasingly barren high streets must be leisure led, Hypha Studios aims to reimagine the once consumer driven experience to one that instead prioritises public engagement - producing cultural high streets of the future.
As a registered charity (no.1194915), Hypha Studios relies on public grants, voluntary support and private donations to fund its operations.
