Crypt Gallery Residency 2016

St Pancras Church is opening up the Crypt Gallery for the final time this year for a residency opportunity. We are looking for artists to use this inspiring space in a fabulous central London location to create work in any medium and any style, practitioners who will respond to the space in interesting and engaging ways.

You must be able to open up the gallery for a few hours each day to the public- these hours ideally will be the same each day and can be negotiated according to your plans and schedule. The work you make must also be flexible to allow for any last minute bookings in the space.

The dates for residency are 17-22 December

Please email us with a simple work in progress proposal- (things may change once you are in the space, but we would like some idea of what you might like to do), examples of previous work and your CV. Please use the subject 'Crypt Residency December 2016':
