The Phoenix Studio Award offers one year of support through rent–free studio space and other opportunities, to artists from under-represented groups and who experience intersecting forms of discrimination.

Developed in response to the need for affordable workspaces, the award aims to help artists to connect in a supportive studio environment. We want to facilitate creative possibilities, risk–taking, experimentation and exchange. As a Studio Award holder, the artist will be part of the wider network of artists at Phoenix Art Space. The award has been established to celebrate talent, individuality, and original thinking within contemporary art practice. It aims to increase and strengthen equitable representation and amplify artistic voices from underrepresented groups to fully reflect the diversity of Brighton and Hove’s population.
