Founded by a group of UWIC design graduates and lecturers, The Morgan Arcade Studio will provide artists with a work space in the heart of Cardiff.

Just £50 to £70 a month will give a cash-strapped artist a place in the shared studio, which hosts up to 12 artists at a time.

Co–founder and administrator for the Morgan Arcade Studio, Dan Hamilton, says the space is so affordable because no profit is made from the shared rent, “All rent goes towards keeping the place open. Between everyone this works out a very affordable price, especially if you’ve just graduated.”

Currently at the planning stage, the studio will also play host to illustration symposiums and workshops held by Illustration Research
