Artist tenants benefit from:

–              WiFi connectivity

–              Studio security – all our buildings are either owned or on long term rentals

–              24/7 access all year round

–              Being part of our community of almost 1,000 artists and creatives in our 20 buildings across Scotland

–              Ability to join the Own Art scheme – Own Art allows for clients to spread the cost of an artwork priced from £100 to £25,000 over 10 months with no interest. Using Own Art can help you close that extra sale – turning a £500 artwork into a more affordable proposition of £50 per month, for example
