Applying For A Residency Placement
Unfortunately due to covid-19 we have had to cancel the open call for 2021.
The residencies that will take place in 2021 will now be for the artists who had placements postponed.
We will resume with the regular open call next year. To read details about how that operates please see below.
SUBMISSIONS NOW CLOSED FOR 2020
This year’s selection panel are:
Domo Baal - Gallerist at DomoBaal
Clare Burnett - President of the Royal Society of Sculptors and former Hogchester Arts artist in resident
Chantal Powell - Artist and founder of Hogchester Arts
Deadline for submissions is Friday 20th September 2019
Selected artists will be announced by the end of October 2019.
There is an annual Open Call made each August for residency placements in the following year.
We accept digital applications only. The application form will be available to download via this page during the Open Call period . The application form requests a short proposal outlining interests and intentions for working at Hogchester, a CV, artist statement, and examples of current work.
In addition to the Open Call, two placements are made by personal invite.
The Residency Comprises

Food and transport are not included. Artists have access to studio equipment but are to provide their own materials.
The artist will reside on site at Hogchester for the duration of their residency.
In accepting a residency placement the artist agrees to loan work for the biannual summer exhibition.
Resident artists consent to have a profile page on the Hogchester Arts website and agree to provide a summary of their time at Hogchester for the page. Residency photo documentation will be shared via social media and in the exhibition.
