    Dates: 28/03/2019 — 31/03/2019  |  Venue: Lizard Point YHA  |  City: Lizard Point, Cornwall

    This residency was set up to help like-minded artists from multi-disciplines develop their practice in a relaxed, yet productive environment. Lizard Point, overlooking the Atlantic, benefits from natural darkness, natural beauty and is a great spot for viewing the Moon, stars and meteor showers. Staying on site, next door to the famous Lizard Lighthouse, artists will have the opportunity to create works responding to the variety of astronomical sights found there, as well as be inspired by the incredible communication heritage along this very special part of the SW coastal path. Work inspired by the residency will be showcased in exhibitions in Cornwall and Lumen Crypt Gallery, London
