Queen Street Studios (QSS) was established in 1984 to facilitate a growing need for artist studio spaces in Northern Ireland. Since this time the studios have provided a vital system of support for professional artists working within and from Belfast.

QSS currently provides twenty three subsidised studio spaces at Bedford St for artists who work in various mediums and who are at different career stages (see below). A further fifteen artists occupy short-term studios at Norwich Union House (NUH) on Fountain St.

While most members of QSS are from Ireland, North and South, there is a growing international contingent with past and present members from Great Britain, Australia, North America, mainland Europe and South Africa.
