  • Session dates run from the middle of September to the beginning of June (confirmed dates will be supplied)
  • Artists in Residence would normally be expected to attend for a minimum of three days per week, for the full session
  • The residency will normally terminate at the end of session, unless by special arrangement with Head of Department

  • A CV with images (no more than 10) of current work
  • A short statement stating your academic strengths and how you would intend to develop your work during the residency
  • Please provide 2 references (or details of referees we can contact to obtain a reference)

If successful, you will also be asked to supply an academic Reference of Support and if applicable, evidence of a valid visa.
