About the TWR Core Studio Residency  Programme

If you require this information in an alternative format, or require support in putting together an application, please contact Sara Johnstone on 

At the heart of The Work Room is our programme of supported, choreographic residencies. This programme supports experimentation and creative processes, from research through to production, according to the needs and requirements of each resident artist. Since the beginning of the pandemic we have been through the processes of cancelling, rescheduling and shifting that so many artists and organisations have also faced in this past year. We have made some updates to this call out following learning from that period and to support a flexible approach to studio time.


Residencies primarily take place in The Work Room studio in Tramway. They provide artists with time and space to research, develop and produce new work.  The deadline of Monday 7 June is to consider residencies for the period August 2021 to March 2022. Residencies tend to be awarded in week-long periods but we can be flexible in this to meet members’ needs. To ensure a spread of residents, four weeks is the maximum duration of any one residency. 

If a studio residency doesn’t feel accessible to you at this time, we are supporting an additional programme of Artist Research Bursaries. The Work Room is committed to ensuring an expansive range of artists and artistic practices are visible and supported across our work. 

See guidance on studio use in relation to COVID-19 here. 

For more information about both the Core Studio Residencies and the Artist Research Bursaries, TWR is hosting an informal info session for members via Zoom on Friday 21st May from 2-3:30PM. More HERE
