Open Call for Residencies in 2018

We have changed how we are structuring artist residencies during 2018. Instead of offering a fixed timeframe and fee, we want to enable residencies that might last a weekend, a month, two months, a year, or over multiple visits; however long artists think they need. We do not have a fixed number of residencies in mind and will shape our programme in response to this open call.

We are interested in hearing from artists who are already working within self-organised groups who would like to use this opportunity to strengthen the group, those who want to come together for the first time to collaborate on new ideas, and artists who might want to bring their children or families.

As with all our programmes, we are keen to hear from artists who can bring a range of cultural, social, racial and gender perspectives to the programme. By ‘artists’ we mean visual artists, musicians, dancers, choreographers and writers, or those working in other disciplines that have a strong connection to the visual arts. 

To apply you will need to tell us: Your proposed dates and timeframe; Information on what you plan to do during the residency and why this is the right time for you/the project you are applying with; Information on any public elements to the residency; What other resources you need; How much funding you need .

We can offer: Our five-bedroomed farmhouse, with shared kitchen and bathrooms, that sleeps up to 10; A self-contained live/work studio that sleeps up to 4; Three studios; A music/recording studio; A ceramics studio; A large seminar/meeting room; Use of a vehicle; Funding for fees, production and travel; Access to curatorial and technical staff; An engaged and interested context, including visitors to the site and an online audience.

Applications are online via Submittable. It is recommended that you apply with enough time to approach us with any questions or queries in using the Submittable website. We are happy to accept applications that have been recorded on video or audio and uploaded onto Submittable instead of written applications.
