Co-ordinated alongside the full-time Visual Arts programmes at West Dean College, the Artist in Residence Open Call is designed to support contemporary practitioners in developing research projects and studio-based practices. The residencies are informed by West Dean’s rich history of supporting skills-based making as well as the legacy of its founder, Edward James, recognised for his support of individual artists and avant-garde collaborations across a variety of creative fields.
The residency programme provides artists with full board accommodation for a three-week period. Studio space is provided, as well as access to a variety of resources and facilities, including the College’s technical support, the Historic House and the West Dean Archive and Collection. Applications are encouraged from artists whose interests align with a variety of thematic areas related to the College’s history and current activities.
