This thesis is concerned with the provision of housing by artist-led organisations. It is also an embedded ethnographic study of a particular house called Artist House 45, a pilot project located in South Leeds. An understanding of artist-led housing as both collective artworks and interventions within the housing sector is developed. The research explores new strategies, rooted in and among the day-to-day processes of artist-led organisations, for communicating, translating and scaling artist-led housing.
