Residency Programme

Our core programme is made up of artist residencies.  Within any one year we develop residencies in partnership with a range of collaborators, bringing the artist's perspective to local and domestic issues often revealing global truths.

Our programmes link international artists with regional and national artists to explore new dialogues around arts practice and local engagement.

Each longer term project results in a commissioned piece for the public realm.  Often this will be presented as part of a festival or other public event.  Through this we aim to reach audiences who might not otherwise have access to contemporary arts.
