What we do
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’s values underpin all three strands of its work:
- Sustainable. Raising awareness of environmental issues through the arts and seeking greener ways of working.
- Collaborative. Developing long-term relationships with diverse audiences, artists and partners.
- Bold. Encouraging artists to take risks, supporting radical approaches and promoting experimentation.
In 2018/19 Artsadmin:
- supported 415 artists in free one-to-one advice sessions, workshops, labs and support programmes
- toured to 31 cities and towns worldwide
- reached audiences of 160,865 globally
Since 2013, Artsadmin has co-delivered Unlimited in partnership with Shape Arts. Unlimited is an arts commissioning programme that enables new work by disabled artists to reach UK and international audiences and has provided nearly £4 million to 280 disabled artists through commissions, awards and support, making it the largest supporter of disabled artists worldwide.
Artsadmin is partnering with Julie’s Bicycle to deliver Season for Change, a nationwide programme of artistic and cultural events that celebrate the environment and inspire urgent climate action.
