We are very pleased to share news of two funded residencies awarded to former residents, and members of our Associates programme, through an open call in 2021. Visual artist Edward Gwyn Jones and writer Kirsty Logan were both awarded two week residencies and will take part in our forthcoming 2022/2023 programme.

We are also very pleased to continue our partnership with Varuna, The National Writers’ House Australia, and to invite UK-based former residents of our literature programme to apply for a residency hosted by Varuna this year. The participating artist will be invited to Australia from 25 September to 22 October 2022, coinciding with the Blue Mountains Writers’ Festival from 21-23 October. Accommodation, full board, a return flight to Australia, and a stipend will be provided. This residency is made possible with support from The Bridge Awards.

To apply for this residency please complete and submit the Application Form. If you have any questions concerning this opportunity, please contact Alex Marrs directly.

Future opportunities for Associates to take part in our residency, engagement and event programmes will be announced shortly. The Associates programme is open to all our former residents, and further information and details of how to join are available here.
