Women artists residency – The Hosking Houses Trust
15 March 2023Deadline: June 1, 2023
The Hosking Houses Trust invites applications from women artists who would benefit from a residency (two weeks to two months) in a country cottage near Stratford-upon-Avon.
Since 2002, the Hosking Houses Trust has offered residencies to older women writers. Over 160 writers have benefited from a period of peace for personal work without other duties, and this is now being extended to women artists.
Church Cottage is a one-up, one-down artisan cottage beside the churchyard in the village of Clifford Chambers .In 2019, Arts Council England sponsored the building of a small, light studio extension (fifteen feet by ten). The Cottage is free and utility bills are paid but there is no other financial support.
The Hosking Houses Trust is seeking:
- artists and crafts practitioners who have achieved a substantial body of successful work, whether in the form of exhibitions, publications or other forms of public dissemination.
- The trust is especially interested (but not exclusively) in work relating to words, for example cartoons, illustrations, graphic novels, calligraphy or animation.
- Candidates should be over the minimum age of forty and be able to manage the short staircase.
- Same gender couples are welcome if both are engaged in creative activity and pets are welcome.
Deadline to apply, Thursday 1st June.
