For the past 39 years, londonprintstudio has provided a creative environment and services for artists and communities locally and globally. During that time we have gained international recognition for innovation and excellence. In 2000, we raised over £500,000 from the Lottery and other charities to fit out a purpose-built facility in the property that we lease at 425 Harrow Road, London W10 4RE.
We have negotiated a unique opportunity to buy the 999 year lease on this building for £475,000 - approximately one third of of its open market value. At a time when commercial rents are rising rapidly, this is a very significant purchase which will allow the studio to sustain its services to artists who live or come to work in London. We are seeking to raise this capital by applying for grants, seeking a mortgage and fundraising.
By contributing to this campaign to purchase the building, you will be helping us to achieve two goals:
1) create a secure legacy for our charitable work in the future
2) considerably reduce our annual running costs and thereby increase the resources that we are able to make available for creative work with artists and the public (previously called Paddington Printshop and London Print Workshop)
