Courtyard Arts Gallery, 17th September – 12th October 2019

We are delighted to invite artists’ applications for our annual 4-week residency at Courtyard Arts.

For the duration of the residency the successful artist will take over our gallery space, providing a unique opportunity to develop and share her/his practice.


The Artist in Residence programme is an established highlight of our gallery calendar. It provides a space for artists to engage in dialogue with an audience at the same time as exploring their ideas and creating work.

Previously applications for the residency have been invited from recent graduates and emerging artists; for 2019 we additionally welcome applications from established practitioners.

Films about Artists in Residence from previous years can be found on our YouTube channel.
