We're pleased to incorporate an interactive map feature to the website, offering a resource for city-centric and regional focus, a visual directory of spaces around the UK. By no means a fully-comprehensive survey, the map will grow in time to reflect the ever-transient artist-led landscape, taking into account past spaces, and projects without a defined base or area.
“S1 gets under your skin a bit, people stay around for a while.”
Louise Hutchinson, Artistic Director at S1 Artspace gives us a 21-year history of the artist-led space, the nightclub below, economic crashes, studio parties, challenging landlords, and a future capital project, all of which form part of S1’s legacy.

Two day programme at LARA in collaboration with School of the Damned, we'll be leading a group imagining around speculative artist-led spaces of the future. We aim to sketch out some of the practical structures necessary for building such a space of para-institutional independence, in parallel with some of the particularly contemporary hindrances to achieving this, grounding flights of fancy with reference to some of the barriers and struggles of 'really-existing' artist-led projects in the UK.
