Block 336 is an artist-run project space, studio provider and UK registered charity that was founded in 2011. Our core purpose is to support artists by providing time, space and support to develop ambitious projects. We encourage artists to make new, site-specific work that they may not be able to realise elsewhere. We offer artists the freedom to experiment and push the limits of their studio practice. Block 336 delivers a public programme of talks, workshops, performances and tours, aiming to expand creative exchange and dialogue around contemporary art.
We are committed to widening participation from individuals and groups who may not typically access contemporary art, with a particular emphasis on persons with disabilities. We collaborate with a number of local charities hosting conferences, educational events and workshops for staff, service users and the public. We have developed partnerships with Lambeth Carer’s Hub, Lambeth & Southwark Mind, Certitude, Creative Future, Lambeth College, Studio Upstairs and South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
As a registered charity, Block 336 relies on public grants, voluntary support and private donations to fund its programme. We have received support from Arts Council England, The Wellcome Trust, the Foyle Foundation, the Mayor’s Trust, Arts Council Ireland, Culture Ireland, Sky Arts, GIRLPOWER Collection, Brixton Brewery.
