Open Call

OVADA Summer Residency 2022


No Funding
Oxford, United Kingdom


The opportunity is open to contemporary visual artists demonstrating a serious commitment to their practice. This is a chance for artists to work independently or collaboratively in an alternative space. Priority will be given to creative practitioners who do not currently have a studio/production space and to those who can maximise usage of the space during the residency period. The residency will provide time and space for research, experimentation, reflection, dialogue and creative risk-taking. It is important to note that there is no prescribed outcome for this residency. Artists can choose to present their work during an open studio day supported by OVADA if it will benefit them, however public presentation is not a necessity. The opportunity is solely focused on the development of the artist’s practice rather than a completed artwork. We will use OVADA’s website and social media platforms to promote the work of the residency artists if beneficial to them.

Number of Participants

6-8 artists from any stage in their career will be selected to take part.
