Stepping Stones Studio is a community interest company set up and driven to promote aspiring and established artists in Kent.
Their vision is to encourage and enable visual artists by providing:
- An affordable studio space in which to create work, and attend/ hold your own workshops
- A cafe in which to connect and collaborate with other artists
- A gallery and shop to showcase the range of emerging talents
- A subscription to the studio granting incredible opportunities and discounts
Their space will stay affordable for artists and – unlike most studios and galleries – will favour applications from those without previous exhibition credentials. The aim is to keep the studio neutral, to play host to a variety of artistic groups in this area, and to showcase under-represented artists. Through the central location and overarching love of visual arts, they aim to create a centre of art activity for the artists and art enthusiasts of the Maidstone and wider Kent district.
This opportunity offers a professional environment in which to gain indispensable experience in the organisation and publicity of ones own exhibitions, and brings local artists together as a collective.
The studio encourages artists to hold their own classes, workshops and open studios for the public.
This unique artist’s venture is run by artists, for artists, and the only space in this area promoting local untapped talent through a collaborative voluntary effort.
