Doremifasolasido Residency Programme

‘Doremifasolasido’ is an annual group residency that invites emerging artists from around the country to Cumbria to forge links between artists and arts organisations working in urban and rural settings. Now in it’s third year, previous residencies have taken place at The Merz Barn, the site of Kurt Schwitters’ last Merz Bau, in Elterwater; and Florence Arts Centre, the site of the disused haematite mine, Florence Mine, in Egremont. This year it will take place at The Coniston Institute, a community run village hall in the heart of Coniston, with the support of Grizedale Arts.
 
ACAVA has been a partner on the Doremifasolasido Residency programme for that past two years.
 
We sent two artists in 2016 to Florence Art Centre:
In 2017 we have selected two of our members to participate at The Coniston Institute:
