5 Artist Residencies

Creating international connections, artist-in-residence programmes offer emerging visionaries distinctive platforms for the conception and sharing of ideas. We collate a selection of five inspiring opportunities.

CAMP, Aulus-les-Bains

Nestled in the French Pyrenees is the picturesque thermal location of Aulus-les-Bains. In the town, is CAMP – the first of a new breed of arts residency, comprising a series of five-day arts, music, writing and activism sessions.

V&A, London

By giving selected practitioners access to the museum’s collections, archives and curatorial expertise, this prestigious programme offers a wealth of inspiration to contemporary artists, designers and makers, fostering a new body of work.

Bauhaus Residence, Dessau

Offering the unique opportunity to live and work in the Masters’ Houses in Dessau ­– an iconic 20th century location – this initiative welcomes young international practitioners with an interest in the movement, revisiting its key questions for the digital age.

Gasworks offers up to 16 residencies annually, inviting emerging international artists to work in the capital. With interaction and diversity at their focus, each opportunity encourages dialogue between global talent and audiences and London.

Celebrating those engaging with technology and its impact on society, Eyebeam encourages the creation of innovate pieces – whether art, research, code or machines – that are both responsive and accessible, addressing ideas of life online.
