Isis artist residency


Visual and Media artists, UK and beyond, are invited to apply for residencies at ISIS Arts, Newcastle Upon Tyne (UK). The residencies are open to regional, national and international artists at any stage of their career working in the field of visual and media art.

This is an opportunity for artists to spend time in a self-contained city centre studio space to research a new project or idea without the constraints of having to necessarily produce a body of work. The residencies start from 3 week periods and range to a maximum of 3 month, the residency period will be agreed with each individual applicant.

All artists will have access to ISIS equipment, critical support and introductions to arts networks in the region. Artists will be expected to be mostly self-reliant and familiar with the media they want to use. If additional technical support or training is required this can be arranged by ISIS at an additional cost.

ISIS will also host an artist talk and networking event for each visiting artist as part of their residency, allowing them to present their work to the wider arts community.

We have welcomed residency artists from all over the world, working in many different mediums and on research and projects in varying scale, you can read about some of our previous residencies hereand also what the artists' thought about the processhere.

Further Information on ISIS Arts

ISIS Arts is an artist led, visual and media arts organisation, which runs an international programme of commissions, residencies and events. ISIS Arts’ core ethos is to support artists to make critically engaged visual and media art, which is locally significant and internationally relevant, and to share the learning and relationships we gain.

We place artists at the centre of all our programmes creating physical, virtual and strategic ‘spaces’ for the production of art. We are interested in artists whose work seeks to reveal the world we live in, providing new perspectives on identity and challenging prejudices. We seek out and engage with artists of all backgrounds and cultures to facilitate international and inter-cultural exchange.

ISIS is committed to showing work within the public realm, engaging as wide an audience as possible in dialogue with artists and artworks, making our projects accessible to a diverse public. Based in Newcastle city centre, ISIS has two studio spaces for visiting artists, a media training room, and an inflatable touring venue for sharing media arts with a wider audience. ISIS works with many international, national and regional artists to support practice and exchange.

Equal Opportunities
ISIS Arts seek to ensure that no present or potential member of staff or project participant is treated less favourably than another on grounds of age (up to statutory retirement age), class colour, disability, ethnic origin, gender, marital status, political persuasion or sexual orientation. ISIS Arts premises have limited access. However, we aim to ensure that as many of our activities are as accessible as possible. If you have any particular access needs, please contact us.
