Florence Trust Artist Residency 2014/15
St Saviour's, Aberdeen Park, London N5 2AR
Deadline: 26 May 2014
A twelve-month studio residency beginning in August 2014
The Florence Trust is so much more than just an artists' studio. The Florence Trust offers twelve-month studio residencies commencing in August each year for up to a dozen carefully selected artists. During the residency, each artist gets 24-hour access to a studio within the Trust's Grade-1 listed neo-gothic church. The artists are then all included in the Trust's two annual exhibitions in January and July, with a full-colour catalogue that profiles each practice and includes a text by an independent arts writer accompanying the latter exhibition.
Throughout the year, the Florence Trust provides a mentoring programme tailored to the requirements and objectives of each resident. This includes one-to-one sessions with the Director; resident curator; members of the board of Trustees; as well as visiting artists, writers, and curators.
Alongside this, the Trust helps its residents build a valuable network of contacts. The artist's relationship with other residents will form a significant part of this network and this will be strengthened through peer-critiques, workshops, and exhibition projects. This is then supplemented by connections created through meetings with gallerists during gallery tours and outside curators during studio visits.
