Development residencies for visual artists from Regional UK

Standpoint Futures is an ambitious residency programme for regional UK artists, providing bespoke, high-calibre opportunities for discussion and interaction with the London art world.

We support artists who are making a reputation in their region to spend time in London to make a significant impact on their practice and/or career without the need to relocate. We promote a dynamic and interactive network between London and Regional UK art world, working with excellent artist-focused institutions across the UK.

Residencies are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. The residency's chief aims are to provide high quality, individualized opportunities to develop the artist's practice and career, and to integrate London and the regional UK art world to promote access and the exchange of ideas.

Applications are are now open for the 2013-14 programme

Deadline for applications Monday 1 July

The residency offer is: 4-6 weeks working at Standpoint in Hoxton, London. Accommodation, studio and all mentoring and advisor visits are included as part of the award. Artists receive a modest per diem & travel allowance. All other expenses are at the expense of the artist.

The residencies will run from October 2013 to April 2014
