Working at Space Clarence Mews has been a very rich experience for my practice as an artist. The programmes enable dance and performance makers to take a breath, plunge in and create something extraordinary – or certainly something that they might not risk elsewhere!
One of London’s hidden gems – a beautiful space to work – so thoughtfully designed in terms of light, texture and space.

Thank you so much for another year at Clarence Mews. Here’s what I have to say:
Clarence Mews has been my creative home in London for the last 10 years. At times I was there to work on a specific project, other times I just needed time to think and physicalise thoughts. This last year I joined the residency scheme mainly to have access to space for my own ramblings and research either just before or during projects.
Caroline’s mentoring has been particularly helpful during this time. Reflecting back my own thoughts, drawing out the ideas when at times they seemed all tangled in my head. Caroline is an extremely skilled artistic mentor. She places the artist at the centre of each session, teasing out ideas, identifying the sticky areas and facilitating your own thinking and articulations of your artistic practice. Having access to Caroline’s mentoring is the focal point of this residency. Space is something you can pay for anywhere, it’s the access to sharing and mentoring that makes this an invaluable resource for artists.
