Studio Opportunity for Visual Artists 2019, Crescent Arts


Crescent Arts is a contemporary visual arts organisation based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. We are inviting artists to apply for subsidised studio space supported through professional development, exhibition opportunities and access to production and workshop facilities including printmaking and ceramics. Application is open to visual artists working in any discipline. 

We are keen to encourage artists whose work is innovative, challenging and critically engaged, and who would benefit most from the facilities and support that we can provide. We expect artists to participate in professional development activities, and contribute to our exhibitions programme for which they receive modest financial support. Studio artists also contribute to workshops and educational programmes, for which they are paid an appropriate fee. Studios are subsidised and licenced to artists, currently at a charge of £50pcm, for a period of up to 3 years.

Deadline for applications: 5pm Monday 16 September 2019  

Short-listed applicants will be invited for interview in late September - early October.
