RESIDENCY PROGRAMMES AT HOSPITALFIELD

Applications are invited from artists who have a specific project or period of work to focus on and for whom this time will be invaluable. We expect that applicants will have had a formal training or similar and will be developing projects and new work for public exhibition or developing their research with some form of future public outcome in mind. The programmes are structured for individuals working at a range of points in their career. Each has a specific focus, the Interdisciplinary Programme for example aiming to cultivate a group which has the broadest range of practices. Selectors will consider the application statements with care and in accordance with the aims of each of the programmes. Please note that currently:-

FUNDED VISUAL ART RESIDENCY PROGRAMMES: SUMMER AND AUTUMN

INTERDISCIPLINARY RESIDENCY

GRADUATE PROGRAMME

PARTNERSHIPS

We also develop partnerships and group projects to initiate residencies for UK and international artists and are currently working with Modriaan Fonds, British Council, Royal Over-Seas League, Make Works, THIStudios and New Contemporaries.

RESIDENCY STRUCTURE

Participants in the programme live and work in the house, studios, gardens and courtyards of the estate. The location overlooking the North Sea gives a feeling of isolation and is an extremely peaceful place to work however, once off the threshold of the estate the reality is that Hospitalfield is a part of the small fishing town of Arbroath and within walking distance of useful amenities. Arbroath station is on the east coast train line running from London to Aberdeen and the direct trains to all of the main Scottish cities. The long daylight hours in the spring and summer, beautiful coast line and high percentage of sunshine hours defines this part of Scotland.

ROYAL OVER-SEAS LEAGUE

Our longest standing residency partnership is with the Royal Over-Seas League, an organisation based in London and Edinburgh, which is dedicated to championing international friendship and understanding throughout the Commonwealth and beyond with the aim to maintain social and cultural links worldwide.

The ROSL Visual Arts Scholars have taken part in residencies at Hospitalfield since 1999. In 2013 the scheme was refreshed to also provide a significant exhibiting opportunity for the Scholar by working with specially selected commissioning partners around the UK to choose the artists and work with them on a public project in the subsequent year.
