Now taking applications for 2020

Selection Criteria

We welcome applications from all types of creative practitioner (artist, designer, maker, writer, musician, actor, circus performer, film maker, … ) and from all ages and *abilities.

*All our bedrooms are upstairs so some mobility is required.

Application Process:
