Cove Park offers funded residencies throughout the year. These opportunities are awarded following an open call and application process, or via nomination and direct invitation. Residents are given the time, space, freedom and financial support to concentrate upon the development of their own work. This programme supports those wishing to focus upon specific projects and those aiming to develop new ideas without the demands of deadlines or public presentation. This is enhanced through a series of events designed to promote discussion between all the artists on residency.

Residents receive a fee, private and self-catering accommodation, workspace and, if required, a studio. All artists have 24-hour access to Cove Park’s Artists Centre and its communal spaces, kitchen and library.

The deadlines for application to our summer 2019 programme of Crafts & Design, Experimental Film & Moving Image, Literature and Visual Arts residencies have now passed. Please join our mailing list to receive details of forthcoming opportunities.

In partnership with The Lighthouse, Scotland’s Centre for Architecture and Design in Glasgow, we are pleased to offer a two-week residency (20 May – 3 June 2019) for an emerging maker, designer or architect. Further information is available here.
