What we do
Artsadmin is a company of creative people working with artists to develop and make performance projects for local, national and international audiences in a variety of places and contexts.
We offer a range of support for artists and rehearsal studios, workspaces and a programme of public events at Toynbee Studios, our home in London’s East End. We also collaborate on national partnership projects engaging with disability-led arts and climate justice.
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 360 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.
