Call for entries 'Artist at Soane' Residency




To mark the 200th anniversary of its installation, Sir John Soane’s Museum is beginning a programme of restoration, new multi-layered digital interpretation, and the launch of the Museum’s first residency programme. Sir John Soane’s Museum is inviting creatives to take part in Artist at Soane, a new residency in its Drawing Office.
Drawing must be central to all applicants’ practice. Entries will be accepted from individuals and collaborations. The Museum is keen to encourage residents to engage with departments across the Museum including the archive, library, education and commercial activities etc.
The Selectors will be looking for a high-quality self-directing practitioner who will use this new opportunity to best develop their practice and who will use the residency to best enhance the work of the Museum.
There will be an honorarium of £1,500 per artist or collaboration, to cover materials, travel and other expenses. There will also be the possibility of an allowance for each artist on a case-by-case basis, to help cover accommodation.
No entry fee.
Deadline: 4th October, 5pm BST.
