About

2015 sees Bow Arts launch 90 new artist studios on the former News International site in Wapping. A beautiful Grade II listed building and former rum store, Bow Arts will reimagine the historic newspaper offices of the News of the World as creative workspace for a new community of artists. Once the heart of the phone hacking scandal, igniting the Leveson inquiry and resulting in a systematic change in the way that the newspaper industry operates - the building bore witness to journalists uncovering numerous controversies, before becoming the subject of controversy themselves. Out of these ashes the building is reinvented again.

Alongside an extensive new housing development by Berkeley Homes Group and St George, Bow Arts will create a new community of artists. The building's history, former uses and future life set the context for our debate. A leading panel of experts discuss themes around modern working in historic buildings, how spaces can define the changing nature of industry, an evolving media industry and growing creative industries, freedom of speech in journalism, architecture and art.

Confirmed on the panel: Vicky Richardson (Director of Architecture Design and Fashion, British Council) - Chair, Michael Owens (Commercial Director, Bow Arts) and more tbc
