Somerset House Studios is devised for artists who are pushing bold ideas, engaging with urgent issues, pioneering new technologies, and are fully committed to exploring the potential afforded by making work within a highly selective multi-disciplinary community that feeds a public programme. Applications are welcome across all disciplines including but not limited to visual art, music and composition, performance, dance and live art, fiction and non-fiction writers, fashion, film and those working at the intersection of art and technology. The overall balance of artists is an important factor in selecting new residents.
Eligible artists may apply for a space at Somerset House Studios for a period of up to 2.5 years. The duration proposed should relate to a planned period of activity for the artist around their own aims and objectives, which will be reviewed periodically during the residency period.
