Deadline Friday 02 August 2019

Interview Date Monday 19th or Tuesday 20th August

Jamaica St Studios are looking for a visual artist, at any stage of their career, who identifies with needing a subsidised studio space.


It might be that you are:

  • A young artist.

  • A recent graduate.

  • Five years into your professional career and studio space is still out of your price range.

  • A mid career artist without formal education, which has been working against you.

  • Beginning to practice as an artist again, later in life, and not being offered space. 

  • An artist whose identity (race, gender, rejection of gender, sexuailty etc) has been working against you to access studio space.

  • Or maybe another reason. 


This call-out aims to offer very cheap artist space to those who do not have access to one and an opportunity to embed yourself amongst a community of professional visual artists at Jamaica St Studios.

It is important that you are applying because at this point in your professional development and career you have very little means to find yourself a studio space in Bristol. If you already have a studio space or have the financial means to get one, please do not apply.

Please note: This was formerly called the Young Artist & Recent Graduate residency, and is still in its pilot stage. This will be the second time we undertake this.
