Three-month online residency designed specifically for artists looking to consciously shape their practice to be more accessible, self-reflexive and inclusive. The residency supports artists to integrate access in their work, treating it as an integral part of their creative process rather than an afterthought.
In Transit’s three-month online residency invites artists to integrate access in their work, treating it as a fundamental part of their creative process rather than an afterthought. Our residencies are designed specifically for artists looking to consciously shape their practice to be more accessible, self-reflexive and inclusive.
Our residency is process-based and focuses on enabling artists to research, experiment with different access strategies and develop new/existing work. They are made public through our online open studios, encouraging interaction, dialogue and professional networking.
While we hold regular Open Calls for artists, we also accept interests throughout the year if you would like to self-fund to join the residency.
There are multiple ways to participate in In Transit’s three-month online residency.
Pay in full of £900 (save £220)
or 4 instalments of £280 per month (total £1120)
Our fee structure is based on careful consideration of providing affordable art education and paying faculty fairly – we have budgeted the residency so it is as cost-efficient as possible. In Transit is a non-profit organisation therefore our income goes towards providing grants for artists to participate in our programmes and making our platform more accessible.
If you seek external funding to support your participation in the programme, we will gladly provide you with a letter of recommendation.
We strive to make our programmes as affordable and accessible as possible. In our pilot year, we offered grants to seven artists. We are actively fundraising and forming partnerships to make grants available. We regularly have open calls which will be published on our website and social media. To stay informed, follow us on Instagram.
Collectors and patrons can sponsor artists to participate in our programme. We are actively reaching out to patrons to sponsor artists. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
“The residency has totally changed how I think about and want to move forward with my art practice. In Transit’s programme has opened up an important issue [about arts access] which I have not encountered directly and am less informed about. The residency has made me realise and put to practise the efforts that I can take to ensure my art is more accessible, both physically and digitally. Thanks to the programme, I am also now more connected with artists from different countries and of diverse backgrounds and skillset.” – Abdul Shakir (Grasshopper), artist and co-founder of Filamen
