The Work Room Artist Residency Call Out

January – June 2023

Deadline: 03.10.2022
Published: 25.08.2022
Applications are closed for this residency opportunity.

At the heart of The Work Room is our support for independent dance artists through a programme of residencies. This supports experimentation and creative processes, from research through to production. The Work Room is committed to ensuring an expansive range of artists and artistic practices are visible and supported across our work. 

Our experience over the pandemic, has emphasised the need for more flexible approaches within our residencies, as many members continue to adapt to on-going challenges and changing circumstances.  Our learning, particularly through our programme of Artists Research Bursaries in 2020 and 2021, demonstrated the need to experiment with alternative approaches with the support offered through our Artist Residency programme. So far, this has included artists undertaking residencies ‘at home’ or in spaces closer to where they live, residency time that is flexible around caring responsibilities and other commitments, and supporting research in an outdoor environment. 

The deadline of Monday 3 October 2022 is to consider residencies for the period January - June 2023.

Our next deadline will be 20 February 2023 for the period July – December 2023.

TWR Artist Residency programme is only open to members, for more details on becoming a member see here.

All applicants will be notified of the decisions by 25 November 2022.
