Webinar: Demystifying artist residencies

Not sure how to find or apply for an artist residency? Struggling to pick the right residency for your type of practice and personal needs? What’s the difference between national and international residencies? Do you wonder what impact a residency might have on your practice?

Join us for a panel discussion to hear residency-experienced artists and art residency providers discuss their personal experiences of taking part, organising, and selecting artists for residencies. Find out more about different types of residencies, how to make your application stand out, and how to make the best out of your residency once you’ve been selected.
