Support Artists


Please help us to support artists in this uncertain time

The resident artists in Somerset House Studios make their living working freelance. Not only has almost all of their work been cancelled with immediate effect but unlike other workers as yet there has been no offer of government support. The current situation threatens their livelihoods in a very real way. They face financial insecurity not only for now, but in the long term as the lasting impact of the pandemic remain unknown. 

We are doing everything we can to alleviate the impact of the current situation and want to be in a position to support their practice in the long-term but as our own income has been severely reduced, we are limited in how we can help them. We would be truly grateful if you would donate to Somerset House’s Crisis Fund and help to ensure we can help to sustain our artist community.
