HOUSE is a collective of creative graduates who met on the Immersion Programme at Central Saint Martins. Immersion is a creative career-development programme that acts as a springboard to launch ideas and careers.
In the current economic climate, with cuts in funding for the arts, the creative industry needs to focus on becoming self-sufficient and sustainable. The aim of HOUSE is to foster collaborative thinking and provide a platform that not only showcases innovative art and design, but also creates an environment that enables an exchange of knowledge and skills.
We recognise the issues faced when starting in the industry and acknowledge the importance of networking and collaboration to develop meaningful ideas. Consequently, we believe that an open-access, freely available hub is needed to nurture entrepreneurial spirit within the industry.
HOUSE’s vision is to foster an alternative environment that empowers emerging artists and designers to create their own opportunities and take control of their future.
We embody this through our agency structure where we host events, curate and produce spaces, and provide a retail platform connecting and exposing creative talents of the future to the outside world.
