Eligibility:

Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop accepting applications for the next 3 months residency session.

Description of residency program
Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop is offering one artist access for three months to one of its spectacular 350 square foot studio spaces, with both natural and professional lighting. The next residency session will take place from August to November 2019.

Working above the gallery space, the successful applicant has the opportunity to network with artists, curators, collectors and the wider public whilst visiting ongoing exhibitions and events organised in the gallery. The residency programme will also provide guidance from gallery directors as well as an end-of-residency solo exhibition organised in the studio space upstairs.

The residency programme is open to artists of all ages and backgrounds including international artists living outside of the United Kingdom.

The applicants will also be automatically considered for the Radical Residency programme.

Accommodation
Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop currently cannot provide housing for its residency programme however we will do everything we can to help direct the selected artist to find a place to stay in London.
