Artist Brief

We are looking for an artist to work with us on a part time flexible basis over a six to twelve month period as part of the team to help us develop ideas around the use of space in this context. This will be someone with vision and architectural experience who can help us explore possibilities for making better use of the space as an Arts Centre.

There is a fee of approximately £9,000 attached to this residency. There is an additional materials budget available. For more information please visit
