Creative Opportunities

Connecting is one of our five guiding principles, and as our projects extend we’re discovering more chances to collaborate, to network, and to offer opportunities to others.

 We feel very lucky to have some student interns working with us from time to time, developing their own artistic and/or research practices, and are always open to requests. If you’re curious and would like to contact us, please send a message here.

We are also developing residency opportunities in 2019 and 2020, and have a symposium in the pipeline for 2020. Scan below to see what’s happening at the moment.

The Light of Things: making Sense of Here


This 4-day residency is an invitation to artists age 18-35 from the South Lakes and Craven regions to reflect on place through their own creative media. The residency will take place in September 2019, with work to be produced by December 2019.

The South Lakes and Craven regions have a rich and diverse pool of artistic talent; we want to celebrate this and strengthen networks between artists, while exploring current-day views about our distinct landscapes and resident communities.

We are delighted to be working in association with the Wordsworth Trust and Grizedale Forest, and to be able to offer this residency with the support of the Great Place Lakes and Dales programme.

This is a chance to experience the Lake District landscape with new perspectives, to share insights and methods, to learn from curators and other artists, to receive mentoring, and to kindle new collaborations. Award recipients will be hosted for three nights, with mentoring and guidance for three days. As part of the opportunity they will also be given a £500 payment to produce work and they will co-curate an exhibition that will include their work at the Wordsworth Museum in the autumn of 2020.

Deadline 5pm August 6th 2019
