About Threshold Studios

Threshold Studios are UK-based media arts producers and educators. They are a social enterprise committed to talent and skills development in all that they do. Threshold Studios has been producing new media art since 1998, with specialisms in moving image, digital and emerging technologies. They also produce and curate high-quality, no barriers festivals with a commitment to democratising arts engagement. Their aim is to enable those who might not regularly attend gallery spaces to experience surprising and playful art with meaning, and relevance to their lives.

As educators the Threshold Studios team foster new talent and devise initiatives to offer routes into the arts and media industries, with a particular focus on those from diverse backgrounds and those who are currently under-represented in these industries.

They also play a strategic role in the development of the arts and creative industries, mentoring individual artists and creative organisations through periods of change or development. They work with Universities, businesses, and local authorities to design creative projects that engage both existing communities and new audiences.
