The Shelagh Wakely Residency

Developed in partnership with the Elephant Trust

1st January 2014 – 31st March 2014

The Shelagh Wakely Residency will enable an artist based in Latin America to undertake a fully-funded residency at Gasworks, from January to March 2014 (11 weeks). Gasworks residencies are non-prescriptive, encouraging participating artists to focus on process, research, development of new ideas and new work. The context of Gasworks provides direct contact with London-based and international peers. The residency encourages dialogue, exchanges of ideas and experimentation within a dynamic and inspiring environment.

Applicants are required to submit a proposal, in no more than 300 words, illustrating how they might approach the residency, and what they hope to achieve (once in London the project could change but it is helpful to have an indication of an idea or a research direction in order to start conversations when artists arrive). The area/focus of the proposal is not prescribed, but the selecting panel will be looking for well-developed, context specific proposals that aim to capitalise on the resources and opportunities that Gasworks and London may be able to provide.

The selected artist will be expected to prepare for and participate in at least one talk to introduce his/her practice to an audience of arts professional, students or general public. Artists are also expected to take part in an Open Studio at the end of their residency in order to present their work or research to the public. Other activities such as one-to-one meetings and additional events are discussed individually with each artist during their residency.

Deadline for applications: 26 August 2013. The successful artist will be notified by 16 September.

The residency is fully funded and comprises:

– Accommodation and basic living expenses in London
– £1,100 materials/production budget
– International return flight and local (London transport) travel costs
– A studio at Gasworks with 24 hour access
– Per diem (£150 X 11 weeks)
– An artist’s talk and Open Studio, or similar public presentations, at Gasworks

Performance Residency for non-UK-based artists at Gasworks, London. Deadline: March 4, 2013

Performance Residency

1 June 2013 – 1 September 2013

Call for applications for Gasworks’ first ‘event’ focused residency

Open to any non-UK based artist

Deadline for application: Monday 4 March 2013
This new residency at Gasworks aims to support the development of art practices that might not normally thrive within existing residency models.

Applicants are invited to propose a series of exploratory works with public outcomes. We are looking for experimental practices, innovative and experimental approaches to contemporary performance, and proposals that question contemporary understandings of these terms.

With this new model, the residency can be less studio-based with process instead taking precedent, in the form of a series of ‘events’ or public outcomes, illustrating stages of work-in-progress. The resulting works could take the form of interventions, community or socially engaged projects, performances, workshops, ephemeral works, happenings, lectures, presentations, theatrical productions or other event-based activities.


The residency is open to non-UK based contemporary visual artists, including those with curatorial practices, working in any medium.

Applicants working in pairs or small groups may apply, but please note that the residency provision covers the costs and space for one artist to undertake the residency, so any extra financial support required will need to be secured by the applicants themselves.

Applying artists should have a good level of spoken English, and should feel comfortable engaging in artistic discussions in English.

Before applying, please read the Information and Guidelines for application, downloadable here.
Applications should be emailed to:
