Adobe Creative Residency Programme

Adobe Creative Residency Programme

The Adobe Creative Residency programme is a new, fresh approach to bring making into the museum. It gives artists, designers, performers and creators unprecedented access to world-class arts resources and mentorship, studio space, creative programming, and a display to showcase. A cohort of three residents across different practices are selected annually to work full time for 12 months, each working with a designated audience (schools, families, and young people) to expand access to creativity, design and making. Embedded within the Learning Team at the V&A, residents will commit half their time to developing engaging learning programming around their craft. This could include working directly with audiences, acting as a creative advisor to wider museum learning programming, and collaborating across the museum to bring contemporary practice into galleries. The residency programme culminates in a 6-month display of their work at the V&A South Kensington.

The Adobe Creative Residency is supported by the Adobe Foundation, and is delivered alongside the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Residency Programme in New York.

We currently have three open calls available for the Adobe Creative Residency Programme:

Our residencies are aimed at early to mid-career UK-based artists and designers who have worked independently and have substantial experience working within their discipline.
