Heartspace 11 at Hackney Downs Studios

The Heartspace is in an open plan space on the first floor of Hackney Downs Studios and is perfect for artists or small businesses. There is a spirit of collaboration and a thriving community, many partnerships and friendships have been formed in the space.

It's a large shared studio featuring 37 individual mini-studios. Each independent artist or start-up has their own dedicated space alongside other makers, writers, photographers, painters, illustrators, costume designers, stylists, artists and other creative industries. There is a peculiar magic in the space which everyone contributes to and benefits from.
