Artists in Residence

Artist-residencies are a strand of our programme where we support artists in the development of their practice, giving them access to the campus and academic departments.


Through offering time, support and freedom, artists undertake a period of research and development, experimenting with new ideas or projects, engaging with audiences and taking risks. It is sometimes difficult for artists to have the resources for open-ended research, so this approach enables them to develop new ideas without the constraints of a definitive outcome. This opens up a process which is rarely visible and we therefore encourage alternative ways for audiences to engage.
