A studio residency in Wandsworth followed by an exhibition at Sprout Gallery, 74 Moyser Road SW16 6SQ

Residency period:
3rd  – 29th August 2021


The residency is an opportunity for an artist, or a pair of artists, to use the Sprout gallery space as their studio for 4 weeks, including an end of residency exhibition.

A residency can provide many opportunities: a chance to change direction, to reflect on your practice, and experiment with new ideas, or it could be a time to consolidate an idea which has eluded you because you haven't had time to focus on it. No one knows what type of work will appear and this is both the challenge and the exciting side of a residency.
