Core Studio Residencies and Artist Research Bursaries Call Outs

By Anita Clark on 27.04.21

The challenges of the past year has brought into sharp focus The Work Room’s mission to support a sustainable environment for independent dance artists in Scotland.  With the gradual easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we have recently welcomed artists back into our studio and are now turning our focus to our programme for the rest of the year. 

We are now opening a call for our next round of Core Studio Residencies from August 2021 - March 2022.  Alongside this, we are supporting an additional programme of Artist Research Bursaries, recognising that the pandemic continues to create barriers to returning to studio practice for some, as well as heightening existing barriers for others. 

Core Studio Residency Call Out

The Core Studio Residency programme supports experimentation and creative processes, from research through to production, according to the needs and requirements of each resident artist.

Deadline: 7 June

Artist Research Bursaries Call Out

The Artist Research Bursaries programme is flexible, financial support to enable members to deepen their practice at this uncertain time. The bursaries are about time to think and respond – they do not include studio space. 

Deadline: 14 June

The Work Room is committed to ensuring an expansive range of artists and artistic practices are visible and supported across our work. 

We invite members to consider their own circumstances and where they are in their practice and apply for the programme which they feel best supports them at this moment in time. If you are unsure which approach is best for you, we can chat this through – please email
