Who is Somerset House Exchange for?

We’re looking for inspiring people who will fuel the dynamism, diversity and boundary-pushing ethos of Somerset House’s creative community.

Somerset House Exchange is a shared workspace for freelancers, individuals and small businesses (of 10 or less), who:

  • Work in the arts and/or creative industries
  • Incorporate and embrace innovation
  • Have a collaborative approach to their work
  • Strive to increase diversity within their industry

We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive community reflecting the diversity of our society. Bursary applications will open in November, offering support for emerging talent and underrepresented groups.

We advise applying as early as possible – as there are only 200 desk spaces within the Exchange, the number of memberships available is limited.

If yours is an artistic or craft-based practice, we have other kinds of workspaces that may be more appropriate for you – we recommend looking into Somerset House Studios or Makerversity.
