SVAD Studio

The SVAD Studio at Stormwater Studios is where bright thoughts and ideas are communicated to student and visitors during workshops, exhibitions, and talks. Through the SVAD Studio, we also run an Artist Residency Program and give participants the necessary space to pursue new concepts and designs. The SVAD Studio connects our students and visitors to the professional artists who work in the 10 other studios.
