Celebrating 40 years of Artsadmin

2019 is a very exciting year for Artsadmin. Firstly, it is 40 years since Judith Knight and Seonaid Stewart founded Artsadmin back in 1979. We are also delighted to be celebrating 20 years of our Artists’ Bursary Award, which has supported over 230 artists, as well as 25 years of Artsadmin being located at Toynbee Studios in east London.  

2019 is also a year of change. We say a fond farewell and a huge thank you to our founder and co-director Judith Knight, who steps down after four decades leading Artsadmin, and we welcome Róise Goan as our new Artistic Director, who joins Deborah Chadbourn, our Executive Director, and the Artsadmin team in summer 2019.

There is no better time to look back and look forward.

Over the summer, we will be sharing with you some stories from a few of the many artists we’ve worked with over the last four decades. Sign up to our newsletter, keep an eye on our blog and follow #Artsadmin40 on Twitter and Instagram to find out more.

You are also encouraged to share your experiences of Artsadmin by using #Artsadmin40 – we’d love to hear your tales and memories.

Looking forward towards the next 40 years of Artsadmin and beyond, we also invite you to help make exciting art happen by supporting us to give opportunities for artists to create, develop and present their work.
