Graphic with the word exchange on it

Somerset House Exchange

A new shared workspace for freelancers, individuals and small businesses working in the arts and creative industries.

Somerset House is home to a diverse and dynamic mix of creative enterprises, artists and makers, and a public programme of inspiring contemporary culture. This unique network sparks innovation, forges connections and acts as an incubator for creative potential and business opportunities.

The launch of Somerset House Exchange, our new shared workspace opening in October 2019, will accelerate this exchange of ideas, knowledge and skills. With over 200 desks, Exchange Members will benefit from a curated programme of events, with opportunities for networking and creative collaboration. By joining the Exchange, you’ll become part of a community which is already home to artists, makers and thinkers in Somerset House Studios and Makerversity, and our wider network of creative enterprises.

We’re looking for freelancers, individuals and small businesses that will fuel the creative potential of our community. With a range of flexible and affordable memberships, you can apply to be a part of this unique network.

We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive community reflecting the diversity of our society. We will offer bursaries for emerging talent and underrepresented groups.

Sign up today to register your interest. Selection criteria will be published in June, with applications open in July.
