Artsadmin is a UK-based organisation founded in 1979 by Judith Knight and Seonaid Stewart, providing project management to a number of contemporary artists (see below), as well as support and resources for artists at any stage of their career working particularly in the fields of new theatre, dance, music, live art and mixed media work. The organisation has established a range of new opportunities for emerging and unfunded artists with a bursary and mentoring scheme, a full-time advisory service, education programme and a programme of showcases.
Based at Toynbee Studios in East London (part of Toynbee Hall), Artsadmin offers rehearsal studios available for hire and workspaces for artists. The building was refurbished in 2006 and includes six spaces of varying sizes for hire suitable for rehearsals, castings and showcases (including a rooftop studio) and eight additional creative media units, and the popular Arts Bar & Café.
Artsadmin works closely 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.
