Gasworks gets planning!

We're delighted that our overhaul of the wonderful Gasworks gallery and artists' studios complex, near the Oval in south London, has sailed through getting planning permission earlier this month. Continuing our record of never having an application turned down (sorry for the brag!), it's an important milestone for this project, which will finally give Gasworks a building that befits the amazing artistic and community programme that they run.

Hosting artists from all over the world via its international residency programme, which creates links to Bangladesh, Bolivia, China, Cuba, India, Jordan, Kenya, Pakistan, South Africa and many other countries, as well as a fantastic exhibition programme, the news came a couple of days after a very special dinner in the gallery to thank all those who have contributed to the capital campaign so far and to wish the recently submitted Stage 2 Arts Council application a positive outcome. There's still a way to go to raise all the funds required so if you feel like donating, please visit their website. It's been fantastic to work with such a wonderful team there and fingers crossed for a start on site later this year.
