About our Artists in Residence Programme

We are looking for 4 artists across a range of genres who are among the most exciting artists in the North East of England. The artists must be at an important point in their career where this project will open up new possibilities and move their work forward. We are interested in project ideas that focus on climate change or use digital technology but we are also open to other ideas.

The programme runs from September to June. You will lead the project with support from our team, you can decide what to do with the time and money available to create the final performance or digital project.
