Cambridge Artworks studio co-operative launches its second residency opportunity for artists, following the success of the 2016 Caravanserai residency programme.  Caravanserai presents an unusual opportunity for visual artists to work from the caravan space based in the grounds of Cambridge Artworks studio complex, in central Cambridge.

WHO: Individual, emerging and established visual artists are invited to apply to participate in this new residency programme, Caravanserai.   

WHEN: The selected artists will be part of a running programme of 2-6 week residencies taking place at Cambridge Artworks between May and September 2017. The timings have been designed for the greatest flexibility and to ensure accessibility.

FEE: None

DETAILS: The Carvanserai Residency Programme provides time and space for artists to focus exclusively on their own practice with an emphasis on research, experimentation and the development of new work, within the context of a vibrant artist community. We are a non-profit making artist co-operative and these residencies are not currently funded. We therefore regret that living accommodation and expenses throughout the residency are not provided.
