A.P.T was set up in 1995 by a group of artists to provide a home in South East London - in perpetuity.

Harold Wharf, on the banks of Deptford Creek, was leased by the charity and a group of the founding artists converted the building (formerly a barge chandlery and then a light engineering company) into studio space for fine artists. A.P.T currently has 42 secure and affordable studios which are fully let. When an artist joins A.P.T they become a member of the charity and part of a creative community which supports their individual creative endeavour.

A.P.T aims to:

→ provide secure studio space in perpetuity on Creekside, Deptford

→ promote the value of creativity in the visual arts

→ provide an accessible gallery space (free to visitors with low hire rates for exhibitors)

→ run Open Studio events to give visitors the opportunity to experience a working artistic community

→ forge links with local, national and international individuals and groups to develop a diverse range of educational programmes
