ARTIST OPPORTUNITY: A call for applications for the Florence Trust Artist Residency 2015/16


The Florence Trust is offering a twelve-month studio residency commencing at the beginning of August for up to a dozen carefully selected artists. During the residency each artist has 24-hour access to a studio within the Trust’s Grade-1 listed neo-gothic church in Highbury. The resident artists form a supportive community and a valuable network during their time at the Florence Trust. They benefit from a professional development scheme  led by both the Trust’s Director and Curator and are included in two exhibitions at the Trust in January and July.

The Florence Trust aims to help its resident artists establish themselves in the London art scene and progress their practice. Throughout the year we provide a mentoring programme tailored to the requirements and objectives of each resident. This includes one-to-one sessions with the Director, Curator, members of the board of Trustees, as well as visiting artists, writers, and curators. We hold regular peer critique sessions during the year and workshops on relevant topics. We organise regular gallery tours at which gallery directors and curators give introductions to their spaces and an insight into their worlds. The Trust helps its residents build a valuable network of contacts as well as providing a supportive environment for making work.

Application form Application deadline: 1st June 2015
For any questions, contact Neil Jefferies: neil@florencetrust.org

‘Carry-on Baggage’ is a cheeky showcase of contemporary British artists in Lisbon, in a mini and easily transportable form – A fun and simple concept. Artists are invited to participate individually or as a group.
