Alike our 28 years established Dalston and Bristol studios, the main activity is the creation of visual art within a therapeutic, safe and social space.  However, our new site boasts it’s very own art gallery, whilst adding to the current programme of Exhibitions, Workshops, Performance Groups, Visiting Artist Talks, and  Gallery and Museum visits.


We would like to thank those of you who have supported us along the way, and joined Studio Upstairs fr the launch on the 10th of May. Along with Luciana Berger, MP, Shadow Cabinet Minister of Mental Health and The Deputy Mayor of Croydon, Councillor Wayne Trakas-Lawlor…in cutting the ribbon!



‘…Studio Upstairs provides a huge range of creative support including access to creative therapies in galleries and access to art materials, as well as opportunities to take part in public campaigns and to get involved in the day to day running of the organisation…’   (Luciana Berger MP)
