about the space

VSSL is situated two minutes walk from Deptford railway station, in a busy artistic community, surrounded by multiple studios and commercial galleries.

The gallery measures around 6m x 4m, with an additional storage unit at the back of the space. It is glass fronted with lots of natural light, though with the  possibility of drawing a floor to ceiling blackout curtain. There is a large work table, fast wifi & modest sound and projection capabilities - with access to a microwave, kettle and fridge in the communal kitchenette.


The space is accessed via a raised, fenced path. Step free access can be found via the carpark on Tidemill Way. The entrance door is wide and accessible. There is an accessible toilet within the studio block.

rental / short term use

We welcome proposals for short term rentals use of the space and will negotiate contributions to our running costs dependent on the circumstances of individual artists and clients.

We are a Community Interest Company - meaning we are a non-profit space. Income we receive from these relationships goes towards the physical and digital running costs of the organisation, and our artistic programmes.

We have supported exhibitions, performances, film screenings, seminars, workshops, pop-ups, rehearsals, degree shows and othersmall scale events.
