The Florence Trust is so much more than just an artists' studio.

The Florence Trust offers twelve-month studio residencies commencing in August each year for up to a dozen carefully selected artists. During the residency, each artist gets 24-hour access to a studio within the Trust’s Grade-1 listed neo-gothic church. The artists are then all included in the Trust’s two annual exhibitions in January and July, with a full-colour catalogue that profiles each practice and includes a text by an independent arts writer accompanying the latter exhibition. Throughout the year, the Florence Trust provides a mentoring programme tailored to the requirements and objectives of each resident. This includes one-to-one sessions with the Director; resident curator; members of the board of Trustees; as well as visiting artists, writers, and curators. Alongside this, the Trust helps its residents build a valuable network of contacts. The artist’s relationship with other residents will form a significant part of this network and this will be strengthened through peer-critiques, workshops, and exhibition projects. This is then supplemented by connections created through meetings with gallerists during gallery tours and outside curators during studio visits.

In the past, artists have joined the Trust at a pivotal stage in their careers and used the opportunity as a springboard to establish themselves in the London art scene and beyond. Our alumni have gone on to exhibit in museums and galleries around the world and their work has become part of major international public and private collections.

We also have an exhibition space that is open to the public for exhibitions, events, and by appointment. For more information on forthcoming events, please view are news section and join our mailing list.

The Florence Trust is run by a Director, Studio Manager, and a group of committed Trustees. It is a registered educational charity that aims to deliver a bespoke programme dedicated to the creative and professional development of each of its resident artists.
