Supporting Artists & Creatives

The type of creatives we support are (including but not limited to) visual artists, curators, musicians, actors, dancers & choreographers. We offer free temporary project space or more permanent studio space to remove the financial obstacles from making work. We also match all placements with a mentor or career development session to widen creative networks and accelerate professional growth and learning.

We provide the space for free but there is a holding deposit for each site allocated. Currently you will have to cover any materials you might need, but we will support you with marketing your work.

Artist & Creative Selection Process

We accept applications from all creative practitioners and we have a variety of sites coming up to host a variety of art forms. We understand application processes can be time consuming so we have restricted the answers to a maximum of 100 words.

For short term project space we have application periods of approximately 2-3 weeks. For each placement we create a short list of 5 proposals that we put forward to our selection panel that will be comprised of our trustees and a local Cultural Partner (such as a curator of a museum). The success of your application for both the short list and being selected by the panel will be based on your answers in the application form so please read the questions carefully and follow the guidelines. 

The areas that we will focus on are: what you plan to use the space for, how it would develop your practice and most importantly – the public event(s). This could be an exhibition walk through, talk, performance or whatever best suits your practice (during Covid-19 this should be digitally presented). You do not need a fully formed event as we understand your work in the studio space may inform what you do but we want to see what your initial thoughts are. The objective for this is to engage local communities but also for us to show your work to a wider audience.

Lastly, in the event that you are not successful, we will keep your application on file in the case that we will have other opportunities to put you forward for. If you do not want us to keep your application on file please let us know [email protected]
