Our Waiting Lists:

To keep a balance of activity at the studio, we pause applications from certain disciplines when there is a high number of artists working in these areas. When spaces free up we will get in contact with those on our waiting list first.

If you work in one of these areas, please feel free to fill in our application form and we can add you to the list.

Disciplines paused: Animation, Filmmaking, Writers, (however we will accept applications from researchers who have a visual art focus).
