All and any Cove Park time is beyond precious.
Luke Pell, choreographer and dramaturge, Jerwood Resident 2015.

Cove Park’s independently-funded residencies provide opportunities for those with their own funding to take part in our annual programme. We welcome those able to self-fund and those who can meet the costs of the residency through the direct support of academic institutions, public funders or foundations.

Independently-funded residencies can take place throughout the year. Artists and groups, of all abilities and at every career stage, working in all art forms, are welcome. We also welcome writers, producers, directors, curators, academics and those working in creative fields in the broadest sense.

Residents stay in private, self-catering accommodation set across Cove Park’s 50-acre site. If required, one of Cove Park’s five studios can be reserved. All residents have 24-hour access to the Artists Centre, its communal kitchen, dining area, library, meeting and work spaces. Cove Park can accommodate groups of up to 14 individuals. For more information please see the Accommodation Overview.

Independently-funded residencies may begin on a Monday or Thursday and may last for a minimum of three nights or up to eight weeks. During the summer months residencies run Monday – Monday (1 week minimum), in parallel with our funded residency programmes.
