SSW is participating in the RSA Residencies for Scotland programme to offer one artist a month-long funded residency in 2022.

The RSA Residencies for Scotland provides research and residency opportunities for artists. It forges important networks with centres of artistic excellence across Scotland, ranging from traditional residency venues to specialised production facilities. Open to visual artists at all stages of their careers, the emphasis of the residency programme is on enabling a period of research, development and production, as well as on the acquisition and exchange of new skills and experiences.

Artists can apply for funds of up to £5,000 and are responsible for managing their own residency, in discussion with the partner venue(s). Partner venues all have a long history of offering quality development to, and presentation opportunities for, contemporary artists. For many their expertise and longevity has formed the backbone of artist practice in Scotland for decades.

The 2019 RSA Residencies for Scotland artist at SSW was Ashanti Harris. Read about Ashanti’s residency in this blog post.

How to apply

There are 21 residencies offered across Scotland in 2022, for artists at all stages of their careers. To find out more about the programme, participating venues and support available visit the Royal Scottish Academy website.
