Site Gallery Platform Residencies

Site Gallery is now accepting applications for its acclaimed Platform residency programme. Open to all UK based contemporary visual artists, artists are invited to propose an idea for which they need time, space and investment to develop to proof of concept stage

Site’s Platform programme enables artists to take over the public galleries and use them as a working public studio in which to make new work. Unlike a traditional research and development residency, visitors to the gallery will be able to enter the space throughout and therefore public engagement, dialogue and debate is integral. The opportunity will suit artists seeking to test new ideas in public and who are interested in connecting with others through their work.

Three artists will be selected for residencies that will take place between January and May 2014.

Each residency is worth £6,000 including:
- a production budget
- a fee
- the use of the galleries for a period of 2-4 weeks
- accommodation
- a writer to produce a critical text on the artist’s practice
- the support of a mentor
- public events

Online application at www.sitegallery.org. £10 application fee. Application deadline: 5pm, Friday 17 July 2013.
