Applications are now open for 2017 residencies at DAS
The next International Residency period is June and July 2017 inclusive. There is one international residency place per period. The successful artist will have the opportunity to deliver a public talk at partner venue The Golden Thread Gallery during their residency period.
The Home Residency period is June to September 2017 inclusive and there are four places available. The Home Residency offers artists four months to work on a specific project of their choice, developing skills and artistic practice, with DAS providing the support to showcase that new work.
Guidelines and more information on both residency programmes are available on the Residencies page.
The DAS residency programme encourages and supports artists in the creation of innovative, challenging and experimental work by providing a creative hub with access to a range of facilities and resources. The residency programme is of significant benefit to the artists who take part. When asked in a recent survey of past artists in residence, if a DAS residency had advanced their artistic career, 91% answered yes.
Testimonials from previous artists in residence:
Access to state of the art equipment and workshops delivered by excellent professionals developed my confidence as an artist and up skilling is always great to improve and open ideas in developing my work, which continues to grow from my experience with DAS.I'm able to use digital skills learnt during the residency in my paid employment as well as having high quality documentation of a solo show due to equipment loan and editing time during my residency.I created new work that took my practice in another direction and I was able to secure arts funding.The exhibition was a great benefit to my profile as an artist.
Deadline: Midnight on Friday the 31st of March 2017
*This deadline applies to both residency programmes
