About the Artist Residency Programme
Forgan Arts Centre is a home for artistic production, experimentation, and learning and as such, offers artists time and space to develop their practice and make new work. Artist residencies at Forgan Arts Centre take various forms, from long-term employed positions to short self-funded stays. Resident artists have access to the centre’s professional facilities, tools and equipment supported by the expertise of our tutors.
Artist residency opportunities are via open call, shared on our website and social media, and invitation.
The Gardener’s Cottage
In 2024 we intend to complete the renovation of The Gardener’s Cottage, a self contained premises on the estate. The cottage will provide accommodation for visiting artists who undertake residencies at the centre. Artists will be supported to use our professional facilities and have access to studio space. The cottage is being renovated by local artists and craftspeople. The renovation includes restoration of the original windows, doors, and period features and there is a strong ethos of reuse and repair which aligns with our commitment to environmental sustainability.Find out more
