On the Panel

Below are the recordings of Hypha and some of the panels that the Team have been part of. We would love to do more so please reach out if you want us to be on your panel or if you want us to advise you on how to make our high streets more creative!

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!

Property X Change: Hypha Studios: Bringing culture and community to empty high street properties

With 40 locations across the country offering free space to local creatives, Hypha Studios is on a mission to regenerate high streets through art and culture-themed community events. In addition to supporting artists, Hypha’s model has proven popular with commercial property owners looking for ways to keep their assets in use, attract footfall, and connect with communities.

On April 24th, 2023, we brought together the founder of Hypha Studios, Camilla Cole, with artist Anna Fearon, landowner Nicola Blake, and art curator Eliza Bonham Carter to discuss the opportunities and challenges of transforming vacant high street units into temporary studios for the capital’s space-poor artistic community.


Director of Hypha Studios @willjennings80 Gordon Seabright CEO @creativelandtrust and @emmanuel__unaji CLT Ambassador discussing the importance of making space for artists in an expensive city like London, against the backdrop of Frieze Art Fair.

@creativelandtrust was set up to acquire, preserve and protect long term affordable workspaces for artists, whereas @hyphastudios negotiates free exhibition and studio space for artists in return for a public programme to benefit local communities.

Hypha Studios (HS) x Creative Land Trust (CLT) present a new exhibition, as part of Frieze 2023, spotlighting the work of 32 exceptional artists that we have supported in the last year. In a city pulsating with creative energy, MELT shines a spotlight on the source of London’s artistic vibrancy.
