Who We Are & What We Do

Studio 503 is a 22,000 square foot collaborative work space where artists come together to create, realize their dreams, and be inspired. Once an industrial property, Studio 503 now offers a collegial work area and 16 affordable private studios just a short five block walk from lively Elm Street in downtown Greensboro. Located across the street from Bailey Village, and next door to Rhythm Works, Studio 503 is an important part of the emerging and dynamic transformation happening in Downtown East.

In addition to private studio space, resident creators have 24 hour access to conference space, a kitchen, an outdoor courtyard, internet and A/V equipment.

For example, opened in 1919 by Hudson Overalls, the Gateway Building is a charming historical treasure that offers a modernized property while keeping the original rich history that Greensboro has to offer. Space such as the Gateway Building offer thriving entrepreneurial space that will help maintain and enhance the spirit of its neighborhood. I am always looking to expand my knowledge by taking the leap and not looking back, but only forward.
