Applications for Artist Residencies are Now Open

Published: Mon 17 May 2021

artsdepot’s Artist Residency programme is now open for applications from artists and companies from any performing arts based practice.

Successful applicants will be given time and seed funding to develop a project in our Creation Space. Artists and companies who take part in a residency with us are also invited to join our Alumni Network.

We want to hear your exciting new ideas, and invite applications from both brand-new and established artists / companies. We particularly encourage applications from performance-makers from African, Caribbean, Asian, Latin American and Middle Eastern Diasporas, performance-makers of mixed heritage, queer performance-makers, D/deaf performance-makers, disabled performance-makers and performance-makers from working class backgrounds.

Successful applicants will receive:

  • 1 or 2 weeks in our Creation Space, which will be used to research and develop new ideas.
  • A seed funding contribution of £500 - £1,000.
  • Access to support from the artsdepot team. This may mean meetings with certain departments, reading an Arts Council Application, or just sitting down for a cup of tea and a biscuit on a rainy Wednesday.

We have an interest in:

  • Both new and established individuals/companies working in any performance art form from across the UK.
  • Work to complement artsdepot's existing programme of work.
  • Ideas that can have potential to be taken beyond the R&D residency period in a future working relationship with artsdepot.
  • Individuals/companies able to create a sustainable relationship with artsdepot going forward.

The deadline for completed applications is 12pm on Monday 21 June.
