Applications for the 2020 ROSL International Residency for visual art

ROSL works with The Art House in Wakefield to provide two residencies each year for artists who are from Commonwealth or former Commonwealth countries and have never studied or exhibited in the UK.
The two-month residencies are fully funded and focus on networking and creative development with opportunities for artists to share their work with a UK audience. We instigate networking opportunities for artists, while providing time and space to develop creatively in a calm, productive and connected environment.

Application deadline: 05 May 2020
Residency dates: 7 Sept – 31 October 2020.
Visit www.rosl.org.uk/rosl international residency for more information and to access the application.
