Community of Creatives

Our artist and musician tenants support our work bringing vacant and underused spaces back into community use and benefit from affordable, creative and inclusive workspaces.

We look for longer-term vacant properties to provide a base for creative individuals and organisations to flourish. To view our current artist profiles.

If you are an artist looking for studio space please fill out this questionnaire. You will then be added to our studio waiting list and will receive email updates when studios become available.

Artspace Lifespace is a key contributor to the cultural identity of Bristol and has been responsible for some of the truly groundbreaking projects that have become iconic in the creative narrative of the city.
