Applications open for Artist Residencies in Autumn 2020/Spring 2021

Application Deadline: Mon 13 Apr , 10am


Following artsdepot’s recent closure following government advice, we are continuing to accept Artist Residency Applications. Please bear in mind when applying that dates of future residencies may be affected by future developments.

artsdepot invite artists and companies from any performing art based practice to apply to our Artist Residencies for Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021. 

Successful applicants can spend some time and some seed funding developing a project inside our Creation Space. We want to your exciting new ideas, and invite applications from both the brand-new and established.

All artists and companies who take part in a residency with us are also invited to join our Alumni Network, with free workshops and networking invites launched this Spring.

Successful applicants will receive:

  • Between 1 - 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.

The Creation Space is a lovely but low tech room, with limited resources. We’ve attached pictures which you can download to give you an idea of the space. Please keep this in mind when planning your activity.

We have an interest in:

  • Both new and established individuals/companies from across the UK.
  • All performance based art forms.
  • Work to complement artsdepot's existing programme of work/ethos.
  • 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.

To apply, please submit:

Send us the following documents:

  • Application form 
  • Artist CV
  • Links to previous work (if applicable.)


Send us a video, ideally around 5-8 minutes long. If you wish to submit your application in this way, we ask you to include:

  • An Introduction: who you are and what your art form is.
  • Your idea: how you will use the time and and where the project might go.
  • A budget or an indication of how money will be spent.
