STORE is an association of artists, architects and designers working between London and Rotterdam towards a common goal: supporting more young people from underrepresented backgrounds applying to creative courses, and addressing the social imbalance in art, design and architecture education. STORE projects comprise three core elements: an educational programme, socially engaged practice and diverse public events.
In our educational programme, young people learn with practicing artists and designers to discover and develop their creative talents, learn practical skills, grow confidence and build portfolios in art and design.
We organise a wide range of public events. STORE exists to facilitate the sharing of design skills and knowledge between experienced practitioners, aspiring students and the general public. We are working to ensure that the next generation of architects, artists and designers better reflect the communities they work for and live in.
As a Community Interest Company STORE’s associates apply their knowledge and skills to projects that directly address current socio-economic challenges.
