Program Description

We strongly support artist-led activity, and believe it to be key in fostering artist peer exchange with a loose residency structure of group work, which includes introductory group breakfasts and talks/exercises to share your work, studio sharings, communal dinners, walks, film and sauna nights. This year, the SSW Public Talks will also run alongside the programme and there will be opportunity for wider exchange with the invited speakers. Residents are given the freedom to work in an open environment, and to develop dialogues with both peers and staff. Residents are offered timetabled support from technicians and the opportunity for one to one advisory sessions with SSW staff. During the first week you will undertake workshop inductions and have dedicated time with technicians to develop a making schedule (should this be required) for your residency period. For further information on workshops see our facilities page. Please feel free to contact us prior to arrival.
