Founded by artists, Yuka Namekawa & Steven Allbutt in 2017 studionAme Leicester C.i.C believes that making art and the ability to be creative are central to the improvement of peoples lives and therefor central to the success of our communities.


Art should not exclude through language or access when it has the ability to set people free by engendering creative thinking and expression.


As artists taking over a post industrial space in a neglected part of the city, it falls upon us to seed new ways of working and living together. No longer reliant on the old broken models but the creators of  truly inclusive, sharing economies, using creative language and skills as our medium of exchange.


We have a free project space that is used to support local and international artists as well as community focused projects.


We fund and run local and national residency schemes as well as facilitate individual projects and events.
