At Rhubaba we aim to foster a critical and supportive community of artists, within which self-organised activities such as meetings and crit are enabled and space can be used productively and imaginatively. We offer 14 studio spaces, housing up to 20 practicing artists at any one time. All studio artists have access to the gallery space between exhibitions as well as access to shared resources such as tools and A/V equipment, kitchen area and communal office with desktop computer, printer and scanner. Prices range between £60 and £160, inclusive of all utilities, such as electricity, wi–fi internet, administration costs, building maintenance and rates. Please join our mailing list to keep up to date on studio availability in the future.
Any artist can apply for studios at Rhubaba. We advertise studio availability through our mailing list, social media and wider networks. We accept applications from artists working in any medium and at any stage in their career. To apply for a studio at Rhubaba please fill out a studio application form, which includes images of recent artworks and a brief statement on why you need a studio space here and how you see it benefiting your artistic development. We can only respond to applications when studios are available, but do encourage anyone interested to get in touch. Should we receive applications from more artists than we can accommodate at that time we will conduct informal interviews. Artists will be selected on the basis of their personal need for a studio, artwork and most importantly the artist’s desire to contribute to the studio community as a whole. We remain open to the various forms this contribution might take.
We have studios available, deadline for applications on Sunday 18 May, move in date on Tuesday 28 May. Apply via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with STUDIO APPLICATION followed by your name and submission date as the subject line. Please detail how having a studio at Rhubaba would benefit your practice (maximum 250 words) and why you would like to join the Rhubaba community (maximum 200 words). Also include any specific needs from a space. You can submit up to five images of your work formatted in a PDF document or website/Vimeo links.
