Revived Battersea Arts Centre to include £1m incubator for creative industries Featured

Tuesday, 02 February 2016 Written by  Alex Bremer

Some really exciting news for the Clapham Junction Digital Indisustry is that support for start-up and early-stage creative businesses will be built in to the restored Battersea Art Centre (BAC) after a £538,000 grant was secured from the Mayor’s London Regeneration Fund. The new hub, which opens in 2018, will be dedicated to nurturing the borough’s many creative business start-ups.

BAC Artistic Director and CEO David Jubb said:

“The London Regeneration Fund will enable Battersea Arts Centre to build on existing programmes such as The Agency and Agents of Creativity to develop an exciting new hub for the creative industries in Wandsworth. Cultural spaces such as Battersea Arts Centre, which are shared by artists, entrepreneurs and freelancers, are the ideal environment for innovation to thrive. We will curate the hub so that it has a direct benefit to local young people living around Clapham Junction to kick-start their own ideas with BAC's support.”


Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council, said:

“BAC has introduced some superb youth support schemes which are raising the aspirations of local young people and helping them realise their ambitions in the creative sectors. This new facility will enhance this impressive area of work and will help develop more of Wandsworth’s raw talent into successful business ventures.”

Alex Bremer

Alex came specifically to web design in early 1998 at a time when the only web design companies were to be found within established Advertising Agencies. What seemed like a good wheeze (and a convenient and quick way to propagate pictures taken on his spangley new digital camera amongst his Internationally-dispersed family) quickly developed into a viable business proposition; "If these website thingies are so useful surely companies will want one of their own..?" From this innocent proposition has grown a web and print graphic design consultancy of global repute - a business of which he is justly proud.
