Artist Residencies: Applications and Creating Your Own

Posted by Laura O'Hare, 5 months ago

Join our Art Cafe with professional artist Amy Jobes to find out more about the opportunities available.


Artists-in-residence programmes give visual artists opportunities to work away temporarily from their usual studio or workplace. This time can allow artists much-needed space to connect with new audiences, to feed their creativity. The right artist-in-residence programme can be a key turn to gaining visibility and art sales in an artist’s career.


Placements come in all shapes and sizes and can typically last from a week to six months or longer. We will be looking at traditional placements at museums and universities, as well as commercial residencies in luxury hotels, theatres and more.

If your art career could do with a boost, this will help artists of all levels to pivot their art practice, covering:


  • The different types of residencies and placements.

  • How to find artist residencies.

  • How to create your own bespoke residency.

  • Payment and promotional opportunities.

  • Common mistakes to avoid in residency placements.


As a valuable supplement to your learning, all attendees will receive an exclusive PDF guide packed with additional resources and tips.
