Based at Toynbee Studios in East London, Artsadmin offers rehearsal studios and workspaces for artists. The building was refurbished in 2006[1] and includes six rehearsal and performance spaces, eight office spaces occupied by artists, companies and arts organisations, and an Arts Bar & Café.

Directors Gil Lloyd and Judith Knight received MBEs for their services to the arts in the New Years Honours 2008.

Artsadmin works with promoters, producers and other arts organisations in the UK and internationally to develop audiences for the work of its artists, and with other partner organisations on the development of support schemes and resources for artists.[2] The organisation is funded predominantly through an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation grant.

The bi-annual 2 Degrees festival explores Climate Change through art.[3][4]

Artsadmin delivers the Arts Council's Unlimited project with Shape Arts, a programme of support for Deaf and disabled artists.[5]
