The Auxiliary is now accepting submissions for their 2017 AiR programme. We are seeking artists whose practices are bold, experimental and challenging.

With its distinctive landscape of abandoned steelworks, chemical plants, coast and moors, the Tees Valley offers artists a unique perspective at the heart of post industrial England. Here, time and space are provided for artists to develop and expand their ideas.

Situated in a large townhouse acting as both home and workplace, the atmosphere is relaxed and inclusive. The spaces at The Auxiliary are interchangeable, from workspace to gallery to pop-up cinema to performance area, and we encourage input from our artists in residence.

During their stay, artists are welcome to take part our regular performance night or host their own events. Although a complete project from the residents isn’t a stipulation of the residency, we do encourage artists to leave some trace of their residency in the form of documentation.

Fee: £350 for each month of the artists stay. 

Please make all submissions through CuratorSpace.
