Helen Storey Foundation

Helen Storey Foundation was a project funded, not for profit arts organisation, creating collaborative work across art, fashion, science, design and technology for social, cultural and education use. Helen Storey Foundation closed early September 2019 and will not undertake further projects.


“The Helen Storey Foundation Archive is now under the care of the LCF Archives Team at University of the Arts, London.

Physical and Digital artefacts including archived webpages are now available by appointment –

The directors wish to thank University of the Arts London and London College of Fashion, as well as all past supporters, collaborators and partners since 1999, who have helped imagine, create and deliver work of which they are proud, and they hope will continue to remain of value to others.
