This is our original studio block located in the centre of Dalston. The front of the building on Ashwin Street is a run of former Victorian terraced houses, now joined together.
The back of the building was a warehouse/factory space. The front and back buildings were joined in the 1960s when it became a community arts centre. This closed in the 1980s and the building was squatted until a few years before V22 moved here.
Around 30 artists and artisans have their studios in the building. All studios have natural light, and a large yard allows for less sociable artistic materials and practices like resin-casting and grinding.
The building is just off Dalston Junction with the North/South and East/West Overground stations within a few blocks.
Studios and Workspaces at V22 are available to rent by artists as well as selected creative businesses and social enterprises.
