ArtHouse Jersey are currently accepting last-minute residency applications from creatives (of any discipline) who are looking to develop their practice, meet local artists or to make new work. Residency is available for dates between 9-20th July (more than one room is available depending on dates).
The residencies are currently held at Chateau Vermont in Jersey, Channel Islands, which is a large house that ArtHouse share with a music school. They have six en-suite bedrooms in total, which can be sumptuous doubles for a single person, or made into twins or dormitories if people are happy to share. There is a fully functional kitchen, and a meeting/break-out space that can be booked out on request. The rooms are comfortable to write and work from.
The opportunity probably best suits individuals/groups looking for a peaceful and conducive working environment to develop an idea such as a script or undergo planning ahead of a production or project. Applications for other timeframes are also very welcome but, as this July window has become available, ArtHouse are particularly interested in hearing from artists hoping for a residency within this period (residencies from September 2019 onwards will be based at their new headquarters: Grève de Lecq Barracks).
Generally, ArtHouse are only able to offer the accommodation, though very occasionally they may be able to assist with other costs if the project is completely aligned with their programme aspirations. They ask that all projects worked on during a residency appropriately acknowledge the support of ArtHouse Jersey in all future documentation and publicity.
