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, individualised 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.
Artists will come to Standpoint for 4-6 weeks, during which time we implement a tailored set of meetings with artists, thinkers and curators of the highest calibre. Our aim is to give as much input into an artist’s work and career in the time we have, to make the most difference to their future practice and career. Through engaging in London’s art scene and being in a new context, artists can develop ideas and contacts that will develop their practice, expertise and opportunities.
