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

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

Independently-funded residencies can take place throughout the year. Artists, cultural practitioners, writers, and researchers – at every career stage, and working in every creative discipline – are welcome.

Cove Park also offers independently-funded residencies to groups, including cultural organisations, companies, and collectives. The facilities we provide can be used for collaborative projects, seminars, programme and project development, and strategic planning. Full site bookings are available. In 2022, Cove Park has hosted groups and collectives such as The Flames, The Work Room, Unfix Festival, Magnetic North, Feminism Art Maintenance, Scottish Artist Union, and Brass Art.

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 Jacobs Building, its communal kitchen, dining area, library, meeting and work spaces. Cove Park can accommodate groups of between 12-20 individuals,.
