Studio Providers Network South
The Studio Providers Network South (SPNS) is an informal group of organisations that provide affordable studio provision to start up and mid-level creative businesses.
13 studio providers are part of the network and this is set to grow as the economy does.
The primary phase of the network was to collate a directory of all studio provision in the area. This is the tool for artists and organisations to source information on studio provision in south Hampshire.
