2019 Winter Residency

Apply now for the 2019 Winter Residency programme at SSW.

The 2019 Winter Residency programme marks the beginning of a significant year for SSW as we observe 40 years of hosting and supporting artists from all over the world to develop their practices and make new work.


Residency 1: 14 January — 11 February 2019
Residency 2: 18 February — 18 March 2019

The programme is lightly thematic, offering a loose reflective framework within which artists can spend a month working on the development of their practice – whether this is for production, research or experimentation.

Running alongside further SSW projects and open access between January and March, the residency programme consists of two group residencies each lasting four weeks. Each group is formed of four to five artists, with two places in the programme allocated to a 'emerging artists'.

Whilst being focused on self-directed practice, the Winter Residency programme also celebrates artist peer exchange and follows a loose structure of group work including activities to encourage discourse between residents; introductory group breakfasts and talks/exercises to share your work, studio sharings, communal dinners, walks and film and sauna nights.

Residents are given the freedom to work in an open environment, and to develop dialogues with both peers and staff. Residents are offered timetabled support from technicians and the opportunity for one to one advisory sessions with SSW curatorial staff.
