Kahoon Projects: Paid Residencies




For its Spring 2019 programme, SET is partnering with Oxford Brookes University’s School of Arts in the launch of 'Kahoon Projects'.

As part of this project, we are offering paid residencies to a number of artists to explore the issue of class in contemporary society. The project aims specifically to develop the contemporary understanding of the term ‘working-class’, while also giving a platform to emerging contemporary artists from underprivileged backgrounds. Residents will therefore be asked to respond to the idea of a 21st century working-class.

We do not intend this to be prescriptive, or to represent any given point of view or political ideology. Rather, the project is intended to encourage conversation between diverse voices, between artists, academics, industry professionals, and wider community networks. 

In recognising the complexity of the term ‘working-class’, which encapsulates often conflicting political, cultural, and financial concerns, we welcome applications from artists and writers who consider themselves ‘working-class’ as judged by their own designation.

Successful applicants will develop a project collaboratively with another resident artist, culminating in a joint exhibition to be held at the SET project space. As a Kahoon Project artist-resident, you will be well-supported: you will be assigned two mentors who will assist you in your development, and a curator will help to give direction to the exhibition.

You will have one month to develop the exhibition, and will benefit from a large studio space, and SET’s established community of artists. The exhibition will be installed for a one-month period, during which time a series of talks and workshops will take place.



- An exhibition developed collaboratively.

- A public talk about your research and the exhibition

- A public community-outreach workshop, based on your skills and ideas.

Payment & Costs: All residencies come with a £1000 stipend, and an additional £500 to cover the cost of materials for the exhibition.

When: Residencies will take place over a two-month period between April and August, 2019.


Your Application

To apply, please include:

- An up-to-date CV

- An e-portfolio/link to your website

- A brief proposal of the kind of work you would undertake for this project. (max. 250 words)

- A response to the following question (max. 250 words): “In what way do you consider yourself to be ‘working-class’?” (n.b. we do not intend for you to justify this. Instead we wish for applicants to highlight and reflect on what they consider to be essential to them in making this designation. e.g. financial, cultural, historical, political. We invite, and anticipate, diverse understandings of this term. We also invite applications from people from traditionally-considered working-class communities, who reject this terminology).  


Please follow the link for full information about the project.
