Space/Time Artists' online residency
Next week we're running another paid online residency for experienced artists. Space/Time is a creative retreat for artists from any art form that asks the question “How can you continue to thrive as an artist?”. Although we're all easing back into real life after the stress of COVID-19, we know that participants value the flexibility of being able to take part in our residencies online. So, the artists gathering together virtually will be:

I was never interested in art at school apart from comics and metal album covers. At 16 I undertook a mechanical engineering apprenticeship at Madge’s Royal Doss-yard scrabbling about nuclear submarines mostly in some trippy fug, as it was 1990 and I was raving. I got into art school at 25, performed as a masked stuntman when I left, formed the art duo ROGER&REID, and started the artist collective GANGHUT. Since then after many projects, events, exhibitions, performances, films and residencies I find myself starting art-fresh after a self-imposed hiatus.
