Available Studios

ACAVA has recently completed a rigorous assessment of its business and operational model. This process highlighted the urgent need to address our financial position in order to secure the future viability of the organisation.

Applicants for an ACAVA studio should be aware that increases to studio licence fees will be introduced in April 2019.

This transitional period will enable our continued operation, organisational change and the development of a resilient organisation committed to meeting its charitable purpose of enabling diverse communities to participate in the creation and understanding of art.

Please contact our studio allocations team for further details.

There is a FAQ page here with responses to the most commonly asked questions.

To be eligible for an ACAVA studio you must have already joined ACAVA as an Associate Member and be placed on the waiting list. Viewing of available spaces will only be possible once the registration process has been completed. For information and instructions on how to join please visit our membership page.
