Welcome to Old Diorama Arts Centre
Old Diorama Arts Centre has been providing a home to emerging artists in the West Euston area of Camden in Central London since the 1970s and was established as a charity in 1981. We occupy a fantastic modern purpose-built space as part of Regent's Place complex.
As well as running an exciting creative programme and supporting local community groups, we have a variety of spaces for hire: 9 bright and spacious rooms ideal for workshops, rehearsals, read-throughs or meetings; 2 beautifully equipped casting studios, a quiet and calm 1:1 therapy space and a gallery/foyer space for events and exhibitions.
Artist in Residence
An opportunity for aspiring and established UK-based artists to work in a naturally lit mezzanine-level studio space in The Old Diorama Arts Centre. The residency consists of two months exclusive studio use to develop work for an exhibition in our gallery at the conclusion of the term. Open to innovative approaches and free expression to foster artistic development.
Associate Performer Scheme
We are delighted to announce that we are open to applications for a new strand of our creative programme: The Associate Performer Scheme!
Started in response to the lack of affordable space for artists and companies with little to no funding we have been trialling ways for us best to support development of new work.
The Associate Performer Scheme is open to UK-based theatre companies, directors, writers, filmmakers and solo performance artists. It provides free use of space at The Old Diorama Arts Centre for research and development or rehearsals to work on performance-based pieces...
