PROPOSITION STUDIOS

Opening in 2018, PROPOSITION STUDIOS will be an artist studio complex, providing long-term affordable work spaces within a new creative community in West London.

PROPOSITION STUDIOS include: 300 new studio units, 24 hour access, on-site makers' workshop with full facilities (welding, casting, woodwork, ceramics) and technicians, communal project and gallery space, on-site art shop, cafe, wifi, off street parking and an artist run radio station.

Located within walking distance of the Central Line, Piccadilly Line and the new Cross-Rail (Elizabeth Line) PROPOSITION STUDIOS aims to be a centre of excellence, providing the necessary environment for radical thinking and creative play. Profits from the studios fund the activities of PROPOSITION.

PROPOSITION is a non-profit organisation set up to fund the development of agroecology research and training centres in the UK. These centres will carry out research into regenerative and sustainable methods of farming and provide opportunities for people living in urban areas to transition into a new agrarian way of living. The centres will provide theoretical and practical education on systems of agroecology and assist people in setting up their own food enterprises.

PROPOSITION works with leading scientists and pioneers in food and design as well as artists and thinkers who seek to transform our relationship with nature.
