Artsadmin enables artists to create without boundaries, producing bold, interdisciplinary work to share with local, national and international audiences. The advisory service supports artists at every stage of their development with free advice and opportunities. At Toynbee Studios, Artsadmin has established a centre for the creation, rehearsal and presentation of new work.
Artsadmin quietly resists the rushing tide of commercialisation and scrambling for celebrity status. They remain: unpretentious, non name dropping, non bandwagon jumping, non manipulative, honest, caring, dog and child loving, perfectionist, professional, dignified, and 100% committed. They love and respect art and work with artists with patience, real expertise and experience keeping the art itself at the centre of everything. Working with them is a true collaborative experience.
