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 emerging / early career artists to reflect on place through their own creative media and develop their practice. The residency will take place in September 2019, with work to be produced by December 2019.

This residency is part of our Sense of Here project and is being run in partnership with the Wordsworth Trust and Grizedale Forest. It 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 and will each receive £500. They will be expected to produce work to be shared online in December 2019 and included in an exhibition at the Wordsworth Museum in the autumn of 2020.

This residency is part of a range of programmes supported by the Great Place: Lakes and Dales programme which has been set up to provide opportunities for creative / career development in the local region. We are particularly interested to hear from people who live or work in the South Lakes and Craven regions.

The DEADLINE for application submission has now passed, and the artists have been selected.
