Welcome to SK Studios a creative hub to nurture ideas & potential
South Kilburn Studios is funded by Brent Council and is home to 13 private creative businesses. The tenants have pledged – in lieu of rent payments – to train a young person from the local area, helping them learn new skills, build a portfolio in their chosen trade and be part of a final exhibition show, attended by potential employers.
Having secured a further one year funding from Brent Council we are looking forward to delivering even more exciting events and traineeships to South Kilburn and beyond.
Initially part of a series of public art pieces, South Kilburn Neighbourhood Trust and Brent Council worked with the Architecture Foundation and Practice Architecture to regenerate the site of 2a Canterbury Road in South Kilburn, London transforming the building into a series of studio spaces occupied by young businesses in the creative industries.
In addition to each of the 13 studios committing to at least one trainee we also offer an ongoing series of free public events including workshops and open studios to which all are welcome. Initially a temporary Public Art project meant only to exist for six months, South Kilburn Studios has recently received funding for a second year from Brent Council. The Architecture Foundation, South Kilburn Neighbourhood Trust, Brent Council and Practice Architecture regenerated the site of 2a Canterbury Road in South Kilburn, London transforming this building into a series of studio spaces including a communal event space, available to those in the creative industries.
The tenants of South Kilburn Studios pledge – in lieu of rent payments – to train a young person from the local area, helping them learn the skills of their profession and build a portfolio in their chosen trade. There are 13 different studios each with at least one young trainee from Brent. The various creative disciplines include documentary film, music, photography and fashion.
South Kilburn Studios also put on a whole host of events for people to participate in. Visit our Events page for further details.
