The Residency programme at Snape Maltings is centred around exciting, adventurous ideas from interesting artists who are in need of development time.
We provide a supportive, safe environment to be creative, curious, to play, to make and to experiment. Our focus is on giving artists the space to develop new skills and reach their full potential.
Applications are open for 2019 Residencies – closing date Monday 25 March 2019
Snape Maltings is uniquely positioned in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that inspired many of Benjamin Britten’s great works and ideas. The Residency programme draws on Britten and Pears’ vision for invaluable artist development opportunities, and there are a range of amazing projects that come out of the programme and go on to be successful and life-changing for the artists involved.
The Residency programme is for artists at any stage of their career, who are creatively curious and who have burning ideas, or who need time to re-focus on their practice. It is not meant to simply provide a funded rehearsal period. It is a competitive programme, so we are looking for some really strong ideas.
Residencies last between 3-7 days, depending on your specific needs. We provide an equipped space to work, space to sleep, travel expenses and lunch on site. We can also provide producer support, or work with you to find someone to mentor or facilitate your process, if that is useful for your idea. Please note that we do not pay fees, but we can help you with funding applications to other funders if you need to make the residency financially viable for you and your collaborators.
