The Art House solo residencies are designed to offer individual artists the opportunity to develop their practice at our purpose-built studios in Wakefield.

Month-long residencies include:

  • An artist’s fee
  • Materials budget
  • Travel expenses
  • Accommodation in our flat within The Art House building
  • A studio space in The Art House
  • Access to our print studio with screen print, etching, and laser cutter facilities
  • An opportunity to show either a new body of work or work in progress created during the residency in our exhibition space
  • 1-2-1 support from the programme team in producing, developing, and discussing your work and critical practice. We work to develop a programme of support to suit selected artists’ needs.


Films documenting the experience of several of our previous resident artists can be found on our YouTube channel.
