Lewisham Arthouse is a 25 year old artist-run cooperative based in South East London. It houses an eclectic group of cultural practitioners whose work spans sculpture, painting, experimental sound, photography, social practice and beyond. The Arthouse provides artist studios, bookable space and specialist workshops, a programme of events and exhibitions, as well as regularly contributing to local initiatives.Members of Lewisham Arthouse share their time, equipment and knowledge with wider communities on a non-profit basis. This echoes the original intentions of the Carnegie library building we occupy – to enrich communities by nurturing their creativity. We work to support artists, their audiences and wider communities; providing platforms and occasions for encounter, learning and making.
