Old Manor Park Library houses 20 affordable artist studios that support a broad range of practice.
Artists working at Old Manor Park Library include a mix of emerging and established artists working in Newham and London-wide. The artists contribute Rabbits Road Institute’s programme of activity including talks, workshops and other activities with local residents.
The studios have been designed to both conserve the historical richness of the building and provide a new kind of space that enables the sharing of knowledge, skills and resources. The design allows for a freely adaptable space that can respond to the needs of its users, whilst always maintaining a visible link to its history. The original decorative features and floors of the building have been exposed and restored to their original state.
