Matching Artists & Empty Spaces

We’re working with landlords, councils and creatives to bring culture to our high streets. Creatives get free space and the community gets cultural events!

Supporting Artists

We give free space to remove the financial barriers to creativity.

Community Hubs & Events

Free and open to all, existing to put culture in the heart of community.

Working with Landlords

We work with landlords to unlock space and generate footfall for existing businesses.

We’re on a Mission to Regenerate High Streets Through Art

Hypha Studios is a charity matching creatives with empty spaces & regenerating the high street with cultural hubs & events for local communities.

By providing free studios & project space we act as an incubator for creatives to test new ideas without financial obstacles.
We provide opportunities to those who might not be able to access space, support or visibility. 

In return for the free space, creatives organise public events, supporting the locality & benefiting the high street.

See us in action! Footage from our recent space in East Village Stratford in partnership with Get Living.

We had over 250 applications from brilliant local artists to take over a former 8k sqft Sainsbury’s – selected by the landlords and other cultural partners. The selected artists will use the space for free, producing two exhibitions at a time, on a rolling basis, delivering brilliant events for the local community – including medieval karaoke and a paper sword making workshop!
