Turf Projects are an artist-run space and charity located in central Croydon, run by people with significant personal connections to Croydon. We created our membership scheme back in 2015 in response to the lack of space for creatives living in the Croydon and South London area (as early career artists needing this ourselves!). In line with our charity objective to support artists on low incomes, the memberships aim to give creatives genuinely affordable space and support to keep working locally by utilising otherwise empty ‘meanwhile use’ spaces.
All of the fees from memberships go directly back into supporting Turf’s programme, collectives and future.

SPACES & COSTS:
Our studio memberships mean you have your own dedicated space in which to make work. Most of our studios are a mix of currently open plan & ‘semi-self-contained’ (meaning they’re walled in but don’t have a door). If you’re after a self-contained space it’s still worth being on our waiting list as we want to meet demand on what kind of spaces people want as much as possible!
They are currently some of the most affordable in the borough, ranging between £78 – £208 per month (and potentially less if you’re looking to share your studio with someone else)
We also welcome discussions about sharing self-contained studio spaces to further reduce costs.
At the moment there is also a 40% concession available for local creatives ages 25 and under through the Croydon Creative Enterprise Zone.
We have quite a varied range of different spaces – some large and some smaller, some fully enclosed and some semi-open, some with 24/7 access and some not (but these are cheaper).
