a creative studio with a difference

Studio Susegad is a home for cultural production, projects and research in Bristol and beyond, founded by Roseanna Dias in 2022. We're interested in ways of creating together that centre rest, care and connection.

'Susegad' is a Konkani term from Goa, India where some of Roseanna's family is from. It comes from the Portuguese 'sossegado' meaning quiet. We believe in the quieter, gentler, more peaceful ways of doing things and don't subscribe to burn out culture.

We're currently building our website (thank you Javi and Tara!) and we can't wait to share it with you soon... For now, scroll down for a little more info. You can also stay up to date with how our plans are evolving by signing up to our newsletter.

What We Do

Hello! I'm Roseanna (she/her). I'm a freelance creative and inclusion producer, curator and facilitator based in Bristol and I'm very excited to share Studio Susegad with you. This creative studio is the culmination of many years working in the creative sector developing strategies of radical care within cultural production - these have mostly focused on supporting people of colour, young creatives, or artists and organisations starting out - or making changes - to how they work

As a Studio, we bring critical thinking, and curatorial, production, inclusion and engagement expertise to the table to support those often marginalised by traditional production processes and leadership models. Increasingly, we're working as social researchers, co-leading spaces and programmes which explore inclusion within institutional and community settings. Studio Susegad also aims to carve out space for the me and my collaborators to operate on our terms and develop ways of working, creating, resting and being together that are infused with care.


Scroll down to see some of our work. We would love to connect with more people to work on ideas, programmes and events which place or want to place care, rest and connection at their heart. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss how we could collaborate - we're currently looking for projects and partnerships starting in 2025 and beyond!

We curated and hosted a 200 person party to celebrate 40 years of the UK's first media centre. We then worked with 10 people from across Watershed's networks to develop a strategic vision for the next 40 years.
