Studio 3 Arts

Celebrating 30 years of socially-engaged, co-created art

Welcome to Studio 3 Arts

Studio 3 Arts is a non-profit organisation.

Our mission is to put local people at the centre of everything we do. We will be ambitious and create brilliant, challenging and relevant work that acknowledges and responds to the barriers that prevent arts participation.

Our vision is a world where everyone has access to outstanding art.
