In Transit offers open virtual studios as part of our residency programme which aims to create an accessible, dynamic and supportive environment for UK-based and international artists. The studio features research, work-in-progress, reflections, etc by our resident artists, enabling them to research, reflect and develop new work in their own terms. Focusing more on process than the final outcome, the open studios encourage interaction and dialogue between artists and audiences.
