Over the years we have supported various projects and ideas, these collaborations have been some of our most treasured times at D-Light Studios.  D-Light would not be what it is today without the endless support from our friends and family and we want to share what they helped us build.

ABOUT US

Almost 9 years ago architect/photographer Agata Stoinska found D-Light Studios in one of the most treasured parts of the city, The Five Lamps.  On the opening night, Creative Director, Stace Gill, performed to the packed warehouse.  Stace was instantly hooked on the venue and the bold vision Agata delivered, the two joined forces and built a strong, dedicated team, including Block T's co-founder Joe Salam, and our new manager Aisling Reddin.  As artists and entrepreneurs we understand the importance of support in many forms, from financial to moral, freedom and space to create.  We look forward to hearing all about your projects, please follow the instructions below.  

THANKS!
