Wasps now have a 40 year track record of supporting the arts community and have grown to become one of the UK’s largest studio providers. We currently house 800 visual artists and 25 arts charities at 18 sites from the Scottish Borders to the Shetland Islands. Their work in turn touches the lives of thousands of people across Scotland and beyond.
To date they have raised c.£22 million to invest in buildings for arts use across Scotland. They now own approximately two thirds of their property portfolio, securing permanent studios for 400 artists.
In addition, their activities support the regeneration of many deprived communities across Scotland. WASPS redevelop redundant, historic buildings into beautiful facilities for artists and charities, attracting jobs and improving the physical appearance of local communities.
