Studio Wayne McGregor opens

Studio Wayne McGregor has opened a creative arts space for making. It is the new home for multi-award winning choreographer Wayne McGregor CBE and his company of dancers, Company Wayne McGregor, and will be a unique resource for artists and communities. Studio Wayne McGregor encompasses all of our creative output including creative collaborations across dance, film, music, visual art, technology and science; and highly specialised Learning and Engagement and Research programmes.

Based at Here East in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and designed by architectural practice We Not I, Studio Wayne McGregor comprises three dance studios, including two of the largest in London, and a series of playful spaces in which to collaborate, make and create. The first arts organisation to be based on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it is a place for making, developing creative practice, and collaboration across arts, science, technology and research.

A cornerstone programme for Studio Wayne McGregor is FreeSpace, a major new artist development and community engagement programme which will support artists to explore innovation in new directions, form an artists’ incubation and innovation community, and provide inspiring learning opportunities led by professional practising artists to thousands of participants each year.
