Somerset House's Affordable Creative Studios
on 19 October 2016
To combat an "accelerating exodus of artists due to rising rents and redevelopment," London's Somerset House is set to open affordable studios to keep the creative spirit of the city alive. Set to be used as both studio and rehearsal space, it will house some 100 creatives of all disciplines. This is a move in the right direction for a city that—like so many others—is seeing a decrease in creativity due to an increase in cost of living. Hopefully other hubs will follow suit in order to keep busy cities full of flair and art, and not just banks and new developments.
