Thank you to our sponsors and supporters!
A big thank you goes to all the 200+ backers who have contributed towards the crowdfunding campaign in 2018, to open the first permanent Mother House Studios in Catford.
Among the 200 backers, we had major pledges by The Mayor of London, Lewisham Council, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, Nat de Gerrers and Zabludowicz Collection.
With a mix of challenges and excitement, the studios are coming along and artists have started creating a new community on the first floor of the Catford Mews premises.
However, due to unexpected structural issues the financial investment has been far greater than expected, we need your support to make sure the Studios can operate with fewer financial strains and risks and we can guarantee longevity to the model and its future replication.
