Program Description

The Art Pitch residency programme is ideal for an arts practitioner who wants to take time out from their busy life and environment for a short period of quiet reflection and research. Residencies are supported but self-directed. Artists can be as solitary as they wish, although dialogue with other artists can be a valuable part of time spent at the studio and may lead to future collaborative outcomes. Works made during the residency can be exhibited in the project space by arrangement. It is well suited to anyone who enjoys spending time in nature. The Cotswolds landscape is beautiful and filled with ancient standing stones and sites of historic interest. The studio is in the Evenlode Valley and yet is within easy reach of Oxford - fifteen minutes away by train and just over an hour by train to London. Artists can stay on a small campsite beside the studio in a tent that is provided with all facilities. Wooden pods are available and plenty of Airbnb in the local area if preferred.
