About First Floor Space

First Floor Space is an artist-led community organisation based in Croydon. Our creative group facilitate art workshops, events, exhibitions and programmes for artists. We welcome everyone to take part in all aspects of our programme regardless of their artistic ability. Our team of artists and volunteers are on hand to help with each individual's creative journey.

Since we began in 2017 we have partnered with numerous community groups in Croydon and we have had a series of successful artist residencies, each culminating in an exhibition as well as hundreds of creative workshops. We believe in the holistic power of art and what we offer at First Floor Space expands far beyond making art objects; we are a social group and delight in the new friendships, collaborative creative endeavours, and enriching experiences that develop with us.

The world always seems brighter when you've made something that wasn't there before.
