Opened in 2010, T.H.I.S currently contains over 20 artists, offering affordable studios housed in a late 19th century Church in Tottenham North London. The open plan layout of the studios supports the cooperative ideas of the studio members to aid transparency, opportunity and community. Each studio artist plays a key role in the running of the space, including running local workshops and international residencies on a volunteer basis.
Thanks to the backing of the Arts Council England in August 2015, we completed the Mezzanine extension to our studio space. With this funding we have built a new floor of studios, including a 250 square ft space with the best natural light in the building, which we use for our residency exchanges.
Currently in its second year, the T.H.I.S. International Residency Exchange Programme offers incoming artists from selected organisations the opportunity to spend time on the production of new work while being offered avenues for engagement with the local community of Tottenham, as well as curators and other art practitioners. The residency programme is based on a reciprocal exchange.
Please note: we do not take applications directly from individual artists.
More details about T.H.I.S. residency exchange alumni can be found on our News page. Updates about our 2017 – 2018 programme are coming soon.
