Where to access the Bagt Archives

Barbican Arts Group Trust (BAGT) was formed in 1972 by artists to create studio and exhibiting space in the Barbican area. It received charitable status in 1984 in recognition of its community and educational work undertaken through exhibitions, public art projects, open studios and schools projects. BAGT moved east in 1989, with assistance from Greater London Arts and established Hertford Road Studios, and in 2008 added another studio block at Blackhorse Lane.

In 2005 The London Municipal Archives acquired BAGT’s Archive documenting it’s pioneering activities over 35 years.
