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.
Since 2012, we have worked with local organisations focused on disability, mental health and young people, hosting collaborative educational projects and events for their staff, service users and the general public. We have developed partnerships with Artquest, BCA, Black Thrive, Brixton Inclusive, Carers’ Hub Lambeth, Certitude, Creative Future, Lambeth College, Lambeth & Southwark Mind and the 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, Arts Council Ireland, Culture Ireland, Foyle Foundation, GIRLPOWER Collection, Lambeth Council, Mayor’s Trust, Simmons & Simmons Charitable Foundation, Sky Arts and Wellcome Trust.
