Battersea Arts Centre is a hub for everyone’s creativity, based in an iconic building with a radical history, the old Battersea Town Hall. We support people to take creative risks to inspire change, locally, nationally and globally. Since 1974, Battersea Arts Centre has pioneered creative change. This building, and the people who make it special, have transformed the lives of young people, kick-started creative careers, and helped communities connect through making and sharing art. Our Scratch Bar has seen friendships and creative relationships born, and our smallest spaces have been home to the earliest sparks of projects that have gone on to tour the world.
