Organisation Profile : Wasps believes that art can inspire, entertain, educate and transform people’s lives. Artists and arts charities have the unique talent and ability to create great art that can do this. Yet many survive on low incomes and struggle to make ends meet. So Wasps was set up to provide good quality, affordable studio space to enable artists and arts charities to carry out their work. We 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 we have raised c.£22 million to invest in buildings for arts use across Scotland. We now own approximately two thirds of our property portfolio, securing permanent studios for 400 artists. In addition, our activities support the regeneration of many deprived communities across Scotland. We redevelop redundant, historic buildings into beautiful facilities for artists and charities, attracting jobs and improving the physical appearance of local communities. We’re delighted that our work has been recognized with a number of awards. In 2014 we won The Social Enterprise of the Year Award in Scotland. The Briggait project, which redeveloped part of Glasgow’s historic fish market into studios for over 80 artists and charities, won the coveted ‘Special Award for Scotland’ from the UK-wide Civic Trust Awards. South Block was the winner of the Doolan Award for Architecture in 2013.
