A.P.T was set up in 1995 by a group of artists to provide a home in South East London – in perpetuity.
Located on the banks of Deptford Creek, the Art in Perpetuity Trust (A.P.T) was set up in 1995 when a group of the founding artists converted the building (formerly a rag sorting warehouse and then a light engineering company) into studios for fine artists. A.P.T currently has 42 secure and affordable studios which are fully let. When an artist joins A.P.T they become a member of the charity and part of a creative community which supports their individual creative endeavour.
A.P.T aims to:
→ provide secure studio space in perpetuity on Creekside, Deptford
→ promote the value of creativity in the visual arts
→ provide an accessible gallery space (free to visitors with low hire rates for exhibitors)
→ run Open Studio events to give visitors the opportunity to experience a working artistic community
→ forge links with local, national and international individuals and groups to develop a diverse range of educational programmes
