How we're set up
WASPS’ full name is Workshop and Artists' Studio Provision Scotland Ltd. We are a company limited by guarantee and a recognised charity (No. SC062117). A voluntary board of directors - made up of arts and property professionals - governs the organisation. There are currently 7 full-time and 3 part-time staff members who manage all the studio complexes from the head office in Glasgow.
Wasps Ltd works closely with partner charity, The Wasps Trust. The Trust was formed in late 1993 to buy, develop and hold property in trust for the Scottish arts community. It employs no paid staff and is guided by twelve voluntary trustees and the secretary.
We have also recently established 'Wasps Creative Industries Community Interest Company' to lead the development of commercial workspaces within our portfolio. The profit from this venture will be reinvested back into Wasps Ltd charity.
