Artist Support

Time, space and support for artists
No matter what stage you're at we're here to help you explore your creative practice


Each year we host an Artist Residency programme in our purpose-built studios in Wakefield. Solo, International and Graduate residencies are available, each with a focus on providing time, space and support to artists at a crucial point in their professional development.

Residencies benefit from professional mentoring, artist fees, material budgets and free accommodation, plus complementary studio space. We also have occasional curator and producer opportunities available.

The Art House is supporting early-career artists in 2019 to create work through four micro-commissions. These may be a complete project or as a precursor or preliminary stage for larger or future projects.

The participating artists have been selected and more information will be revealed shortly.
