Southwark Studio Award

The Southwark Studio Residency (2006 – 2012) was based at the Galleria in Peckham. The residency was awarded to Southwark-based artists, who received a rent-free studio (worth £5,200) for 18 months, plus a stipend of £10,000. The residency was supported by Southwark Council and the South London Gallery. The partners aimed to nurture and extend the relationship between the artist, their work and the wider community.
