Open Call to UK Based Artists | Acme Residency 2020 at the Fire Station, London

Application deadline: 30 September, 5pm.

Applications are now open for Acme’s landmark five year work/live residency at the Fire Station. The residency provides eight artists with secure, practical, work/live studio space, and a programme of artist support and professional development for five years (2020-2025). Based in the heart of East London, the residency allows artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and careers, and less time working to survive.

The building has housed communities of exceptional artists from all over the world since 1997, including Erika Tan, Lindsay Seers, Samson Kambalu, Aaron Williamson, Jonathan Baldock, Martin Creed, Haroon Mirza and Leah Capaldi.

The architecture of the Fire Station, a listed former London Fire Brigade Station in Poplar, promotes a neighbourly approach to living and working and is the base from which a dynamic community of artists can form.

The residency is open to UK-based non-commercial fine artists who have been making work for five years or more. The selection panel for 2020-2025 includes Anthea Hamilton, artist and current Acme work/live studio resident, and Judith Carlton, Director of Southwark Park Galleries.
