East Thames and the Bow Arts Trust

As partners and neighbours, East Thames and the Bow Arts Trust are proud to be working together to make east London a great place to live.

The unique partnership between the two organisations is based around a simple model: East Thames provides space for a series of artists' studios at our Taylor Place estate. Bow Arts manages these spaces, bringing in rental income from the artists. A proportion of the rent is then used to fund a programme of inspirational learning opportunities for children and young people and their communities in the local area.

Our programme of activities includes:

  • An annual open studios event – inviting residents and the wider public behind the scenes in the artist studios.
  • An education programme – a series of artist-led educational projects for local children, young people, schools and education settings.
  • Community events and projects on site and in the local area

In addition all East Thames residents have access to http://www.londonsartistquarter.org/, east London’s cultural portal. East London is home to one of the largest number of working artists, arts organisations and galleries in the world. London’s Artist Quarter is a great way for local people to find out what is going on in their area, find opportunities and work in the arts and have the chance to list your own events all for free.

You can find more information about Bow Arts at http://www.bowarts.org.
