This year, the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities are supporting their arts & humanities PhD students (based across 17 Scottish institutions) with residencies for creative practice, working with Cove Park to provide dedicated creative time, space, and freedom to develop their doctoral work within a supportive and inspiring context.
