Producing: Artsadmin enables artists to create without boundaries, connecting bold interdisciplinary work with local, national and international audiences. For 38 years, it has produced a range of work, from city-wide outdoor events to long-term participatory projects, from gallery installations to performances, from small local venues to large international festivals.
Artist Development: It delivers free advice, training and artist-led development opportunities for artists.
Toynbee Studios: In London’s East End, Artsadmin has established a centre for the creation, development and presentation of new work, where, in rehearsal, performance and meeting spaces, new talent is constantly nurtured.

Artsadmin currently has 30 artists’ productions available to tour. These are wide-ranging and suitable for almost any context: gallery spaces, black box studios, theatres, unusual sites or outdoor spaces. The artists’ work they produce tours nationally and internationally, to venues and festivals alike.
Their portfolio includes work for performance spaces such as Tim Spooner’s intricate performed sculptures The Assembly of Animals and The Voice of Nature; work suitable for galleries such as Graeme Miller’s Beheld with glass vessels charged with images of sites where migrants have fallen from planes; work suitable for outdoor spaces such as Station House Opera’s city-wide breezeblock course Dominoes (popular for festival openings).
Artsadmin produce a body of work which responds to climate change and green issues, such as Amy Sharrocks’ crowd-sourced Museum of Water. Other themes of their work include participatory projects, such as Rosemary Lee’s Under the Vaulted Sky which brings communities and dancers together under a ‘cathedral’ of trees, and socio-political work, such as Phoebe Davies’ Influences working with at-risk women groups.
