Deadlines: Friday 4 December 2015 (visual arts), Monday 7 December 2015 (crafts)
Funded residencies are awarded by direct invitation or following an application process. Artists on residency are given the time, space, freedom and financial support to concentrate on the development of their work.
Cove Park provides a supportive context in which artists can devise new projects, experiment and engage with artists working in different fields or with different approaches to their practice. Cove Park is happy to support and facilitate the production of specific projects during residencies and, equally, to ensure that those artists who wish to develop new ideas without the constraints of the completion of a final piece of work are free to do so. The opportunity for individual research and development is enhanced through the interaction and discussion that takes place between the artists on residency.
This is promoted through a series of informal events, talks and presentations.

In 2016 Cove Park will award a minimum of three funded Visual Arts Residencies, of between one to three months each, for individual national and international artists.
