STUDIO SPACE AVAILABILITY

Shared workspace available
Artist groups, collectives 1 and individuals are invited to apply to use a large ground-floor
studio at CRATE in Margate.
The studio will become available on 1 May 2020. It is approximately 49.71 m 2 (535 ft 2 ), has
four north-facing windows and is wheelchair accessible.
The new studio holder/s will pay a monthly fee of £379.03 plus electricity 2 , which is
individually metered. A deposit of one month’s rent is also required.
The license covers 24-hour access to the building, domestic-quality Wi-fi and use of utilities.
CRATE will consider applications from individual artists interested in hiring the whole space,
but owing to the size of the space, CRATE will favour applications from groups, all else
being equal.
CRATE’s minimum contract for new studio holders is six months.
We anticipate that the space would be suitable of groups of up to six, but, depending on
working style, it could host more.
If you have already made an application for studio space at Crate and are interested in this
studio, please contact admin@cratespace.co.uk to register your interest, indicating whether
you are part of a group or wanting the studio to yourself. You may send further information or
update your application if you wish - the application form is attached. Please state in your
email if you wish us to refer to your earlier application. 
Please provide:
 A completed studio application form
 Up-to-date artist CVs from each of the group members, or a single cv where the
group practises collaboratively.
 A statement on work and how you plan to use the space.
 Examples of work (up to 6 images, and/or short extracts from sound or moving
images works)
Please direct any questions to Jo Murray: admin@cratespace.co.uk

1 Groups are not expected to necessarily have a shared or collaborative practice. CRATE only asks that groups
organise themselves, and provide CRATE with a single point of contact and invoicing address, and that a
standing order will be set up to make monthly payments for the group as a whole.
2 2. Electricity: Crate will take monthly readings and bill the studio holder quarterly. It is the studio holder’s
responsibility to monitor usage via their meter.
