Standpoint Futures 2014
Development residencies for artist from regional UK


Standpoint Futures visual art development residencies are for emerging/mid career artists, based outside Greater London. They are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. The residency's chief aims are to provide high quality, individualized opportunities to develop the artist's practice and career, and to integrate London and the regional UK art world to promote access and the exchange of ideas. 

The residencies for 2014 have now finished - we will begin a new series of residencies in 2015.
