For 2021, we are offering an artist residency for a period of up to 4 weeks between 15 Sept - 15 Oct. This non-tutored residency will allow you to develop and work on a project of your choice. It is ideally suited to photographers and printmakers, but it can also accommodate other creative practices such as writing, drawing, painting, etc. As there will be no tuition you need to be self-motivated and resourceful to effectively manage your time and effort.
