Crescent Arts offers studios at a subsidised rent to provide artists with the opportunity and
support to develop their work in a stimulating environment.
Studio Opportunities 2015
We are inviting artists to apply for subsidised studio space supported through professional
development, exhibition opportunities and access to production and workshop facilities.
We are keen to encourage artists whose work is innovative, challenging and critically engaged,
and who would benefit most from the facilities and support that we can provide. We ask artists
to participate in professional development activities, and contribute to our exhibitions programme
for which they receive modest financial support. Studio artists also contribute to workshops and
educational programmes, for which they are paid an appropriate fee.
Studios are subsidised and licenced to artists, currently at an all-in charge of £45pcm,
for a period of up to 3 years.
How to apply:
Further details to follow in the new year.
Artists and Crescent Arts’ Director, Stuart Cameron, work closely together to identify
appropriate and realistic goals. Training and support is provided whenever possible to
assist artists in planning for and achieving their aims. Crescent Arts can provide modest
financial support for training, research and development which at the same time enhances
our artistic and cultural programme.
Professional development is a key factor and artists are encouraged to work strategically
to promote their practice beyond the studio; whether this is through exhibitions,
off-site projects, presentations, educational activities or cultural exchange.
Artists are encouraged to contribute to the running of the gallery, studios and workshops
programme by providing services in these areas for appropriate remuneration.
Studio artists are expected to share their skills and experience and frequently
organise group projects and exhibitions. Prospective studio holders are considered
in terms of their ability to contribute to collaborative ventures; and of course for
the potential of their individual work.
