North Devon Artist Residency

North Devon Artist Res­i­den­cy was found­ed in 2018 with the aim of stim­u­lat­ing work engag­ing with and inspired by Combe Mar­tin and north Devon.

The aim of the residency is to create a serious collection of contemporary artworks inspired by and engaging with north Devon, and more particularly Combe Martin.

In addition to the physical collection, we are keen to encourage documented participatory projects in the village. The emphasis of the residency as a whole is to create innovative and cutting edge works. Each resident artist will be required to donate one work created during/as a result of the residency to the collection.

We accept proposals in media such as photography, film, text, performance, sound, music, poetry and engagement with the public.

The selected artists' areas of interest can range from responses to the landscape, seascape, dark skies, geology, village architecture and archeology to engagement with the local economy and culture, plus anything in between.
