The Summer and Autumn Residencies are part of our funded programme and are open to UK and UK-based visual artists. The 257 applications which we received this year held an exciting range of ideas and projects and came from artists across the country. The selectors consider and discuss the quality of the work presented, the difference the residency will make for the individual applicants and the potential for the overall group dynamic.

The residents will come together to work on their proposed projects, take part in group discussions and events with the selectors and other guests.
