Affordability / Advocacy / Community & Development AffordabilitySFSA has established itself as one of London's leading artists' and craft and designer maker studio space providers over the past 21 years. Our core aim is providing best quality studios and facilities at monthly rental prices our members can afford.

On average we are 25-30% lower than open market commercial rents. SFSA Studio & Community members will always be given priority notification and ability to reserve available studios in our buildings or within future development schemes ahead of non members.AdvocacyThe affordable studio space sector in the capital has been under threat for many years and the problem is only getting worse with increasing property land values. SFSA have been a member of the GLA Artists' Workspace Taskforce for the past 4 years advising the Mayor's office on the challenges facing artists' and craft and designer makers in London. SFSA will continue to advocate for the members it represents, the more members we have the louder we are heard, and more influence we have to support the policy changes needed at both local and national levels to support the future of our sector.
