Before making an application please read more about the overall Residency Programme here.
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:-
- The funded residency programmes (Summer and Autumn) are devised for those developing their working lives within the scope of contemporary visual art practice. Applications for 2017 are invited until 23 January 2017…
- The Interdisciplinary Programme is a programme that welcomes applications from a wide range of cultural practitioners. Following the deadline in late 2016, the 2017 Interdisciplinary Residents have now been selected. You can read about them here…
- The Graduate Programme invites applications from recent graduates of visual art degree courses in Scotland. Applicants will open in February 2017.
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.
