Enclave is an artist-run, non-profit infrastructure in Deptford, South East London hosting a community of galleries and creative organisations within a row of 10 Enclave units.   Championing experimental, critical, ambitious and relevant art practice, with attention given to non-profit, DIY, radical and artist-led organisations and galleries who deliver projects that make a difference to the local community and wider arts sector. 

We support young curators, artists, collectives and organisations through subsidised below market rent, and funded pop-up opportunities.  Offering an alternative model to the increasing cost of commercial renting, by creating a unique opportunity for young projects and non-profits to develop and and thrive. 

We give back to the local area by providing a welcoming environment for the local community and helping grow the appreciation of Lewisham as an important arts location, communicating projects widely and bringing visitors to the borough.

Enclave was created by Anthony Gross with arts charity TemporaryContemporary in 2012.  Over the years it has played an important role for visual arts in South East London, hosting projects from a wide variety of young influential curators, artists and organisations, attracting local, national and international audiences.  The project has been invaluable for the for many young artists, galleries and creative projects, allowing them the chance to sustainably begin their professional journey and flourish.

Since 2021 Enclave has been run by Gossamer Fog CIC.
