Discover what Submit to Love Studios represents, and find about our artists and work.
What is Submit to Love Studios?
Submit to Love Studios is home to a collective of self-taught artists. These artists have developed a set of unique practices and interests, refined over more than a decade.
All of our artists have survived brain injuries - some use this to inform their work, whilst others take inspiration from the world around them.
The studio is based at Headway East London in Hackney, a charity supporting survivors of brain injury:
“Having a brain injury puts you in a lonely place. It is scary, hard, cold, remote and very baffling. All you want is to feel you still have a life to live. This place and these people gave me that. From the depths of nowhere, as if by magic, they found my soul and put it back in the right place” - Billy
All of our artists are members of Headway East London and most visit the studio once or twice a week. Some have practiced art before their injuries, some have more recently discovered a passion and talent for their work. Each artist is encouraged to develop their own style and work in a relaxed setting - this can be through individual or collaborative projects.
We are lucky to be supported by a number of funding organisations and worshipful companies. Their contributions allow us to continue developing the work we do with our artists and the opportunities we are able to offer. We would like to thank the following for their support over the last year:
- R S Brownless
- Boshier Hinton Foundation
- Network Rail Charitable Fund
- City Bridge Trust
