Acme Studios International Residencies Program

Associate Artist Residency


WHERE: London, England

WHEN: Residencies for 1, 2 or 3 months

WHO: Artists working in any discipline

Acme International Residencies Program is now accepting applications directly from artists for our Associate Artist Residency (AAR) program. AAR enables artists to access the networks and opportunities previously only available through residencies with our partner organizations.

An AAR is tailored to the specific needs of the artist, allowing them to research, develop relationships and focus on their work in a supported environment. Residencies can be developed around a particular project, or be conceived of as networking and contacts focused. The IRP manager mentors AAR artists individually, matching their skills and ambitions with industry experts. We help artists make the most of their time in London by introducing new creative supports and establishing mentoring relationships. Acme facilitates introductions, discussions and presentations with contemporary galleries, consultants, artists and cultural organizations. This approach benefits the artist well beyond the residency period, often leading to further opportunities.

Artists require five years professional experience, strong English language skills and the confidence to hold discussions (in English) with arts industry professionals. AAR is not open to undergraduate students. Postgraduate students may apply if they have the required professional experience independent of their studies.

To Apply:
Artists working in any discipline are welcome to apply for 1, 2 or 3 month residencies. Application forms and detailed information on finding funding can be found at:
