Artist Residency: 19th July - 28th September

This summer S1 Artspace will host its third Artist in Residence. S1 Artspace is a nationally recognised organisation committed to supporting and enabling contemporary visual artists to develop and show new work. It does this firstly by providing studio space for practicing artists in South Yorkshire - S1 / studios, and secondly by commissioning artists across the UK to develop and present new work - S1 / projects.

The residency will take place over ten weeks from 19th July - 28th September, to be followed by a solo exhibition in October - November 2008.

The resident artist will be supported by a £1,500 production fee and a budget for travel & accommodation. The resident artist will have sole use of the project space to use as a studio which is located centrally to the twenty S1 studios and will be supported by the S1 curator through regular discussions. The curator will also facilitate any additional help and support the resident artist may require.

- Particular attention will be given to how artists intend to use the opportunity, time and space to advance their practice
