The Lodge Residency 2023

Calling all artists resident in the UK – would you like the chance to spend 3 months in the Derbyshire Dales to take some time to stand back and think about what you do, maybe consider a new direction?
The Lodge Project will enable an established artist with a minimum of 5 years practice experience to undertake a funded residency in the Derbyshire Dales during the Summer of 2023.
We are looking for a visual artist who would explore the area from an outsider’s point of view – the landscape, diverse architecture, industrial past and community, and develop a body of work based on their time here. The residency would conclude with an exhibition at Wirksworth Festival.
The successful applicant will be provided free of charge, with an C18th century, 3 bedroom cottage with adjoining studio 1.5 miles from the town of Wirksworth.
Your own transport and personal studio equipment would be needed.

A £3,000 fee is paid to the artist.
Application deadline 31st January 2023
Residency period: July/August/September 2023
Eligibility: A UK resident visual artist wishing to refresh and develop their practice.

Application process:
A proposal, of approx. 300 words, illustrating how you might approach the residency and what you would hope to achieve.
A current C.V.
10 images of recent work.
