This is what we do

A Taste of Space is an artists studio that specialises in cross-platform storytelling.

We collaborate with agencies and brands to reframe the world, creating immersive experiences that have a lasting impact on people.

This is how we work

We work across mediums.

We start with what we want to say, an idea or concept, and from there decide how best to bring it to life.

This means we’ve curated exhibitions, run immersive nights, built theatre shows, held interactive dinners, created binaural soundscapes, put on public performances, directed short films, hosted talks and asked actors to run across the rooftops of London.

This is what we believe

We come from the world of art, and we remain in it.

We show people different ways of looking at the world. This allows connections to develop for an audience that weren’t there before, whether that be with the environment around them or with each other.

Working with brands creates an opportunity for us to bring these progressive and impactful experiences to mass audiences on a national and international scale.

We believe that marketing campaigns, content and experiences can and should be genuinely engaging experiences for audiences.
