The Micro Residency programme is a research and development opportunity for artists at any stage of their career. Designed to foster experimentation and innovation, the Micro Residencies allow the participants to engage in an intensive six week period of production, testing and investigation while living in the onsite apartments.
The programme enables artists to explore new ideas out with their normal practice whilst benefitting from ESW’s facilities and staff support allowing residents to develop their ideas without the pressure of producing work for public exhibition.
The residents will also be part of a vibrant and welcoming studio holder and artistic community opening up the networking and peer review opportunities.
As this residency programme is conceived as a period of artistic research the only set public outcome is a presentation of your current practice. This is normally an artist’s talk but is open to what form this event takes. There is no exhibition outcome expected from the residency.
