20 Wellington Road studios

20 Wellington Road

We are based at 20 Wellington Road  which is a former Victorian icehouse overlooking Shoreham Harbour in Brighton.

The building has:

  • Five studio/office spaces
  • Communal area
  • Project room and meeting space
  • Residency accommodation
  • Edit suite

Designed by award winning architects Block, 20 Wellington Road has been developed to act as a meeting point for artists, scientists and industry to collaborate, research and exchange knowledge. The building is designed to be sustainable, employing the highest quality design and materials to deliver value in the long term.

We rent out two studios. Visual artists, graphic designers and coders have all been based in the building.

We do occasional talks, workshops, showings, public tests and seminars. Act Otherwise is an annual seminar bringing together 40 key figures in related fields to discuss important issues of the moment. Click here to learn more about the event.

We run a Residency Programme. If you are interested in undertaking a residency at the studios click here.

We frequently mentor emerging artists, games designers and developers whether they are at school, in higher education or are working full time on their practice. Our edit suite is used regularly by associates, residents and local artists.

20 Wellington Road provides a hub for development and innovation in the intersection of arts, performance and digital media. With the generous support of Arts Council England and SEEDA, the building is a resource for wider benefit. Please get in touch with us if you want to know more about it.
