Residencies

ArtHouse Jersey residencies are an opportunity for international artists to take space and time to develop their practice, meet local artists or to make new work.

Our residencies are generally held at Chateau Vermont in Jersey, Channel Islands, which is a large house that we share with the Jersey Academy of Music. In the summer of 2019 we will be moving to the Greve de Lecq Barracks to create a new home for ArtHouse Jersey, solely focused on creating a space to support artists.

Criteria for obtaining a residency

We proactively offer residencies to artists and companies whose work we are aware of but are also open to people approaching us too as long as applicants meet the following assessment criteria:
  • Does the artist/company have a provable track record of making work that has been presented to an audience in some way? Is their commitment to their craft clear?
  • Do they have a clear outline of what they are wishing to achieve? Do we have a good sense of what they will be working on?
  • Do we have the space and facilities to be able to support the activity being proposed?
  • Is there a wider plan for how the work will be taken forward? Are we confident that this is viable? Might there be a further role for ArtHouse Jersey?
  • Does the project present potential new connections for ArtHouse Jersey?

We particularly welcome proposals that engage directly with Jersey as a place or could open up outreach opportunities for our artists, students and wider community, but this is not always essential.

Generally, we are only able to offer the accommodation, though very occasionally we may be able to assist with other costs if the project is completely aligned with our programme aspirations.

We ask that all projects worked on during a residency appropriately acknowledge the support of ArtHouse Jersey in all future documentation and publicity. We profile each residency on our website and social media.

Please e-mail our Producer, Alice Bravery, on alice@arts.je, if you have any questions about our residency programme or wish to discuss a proposal.
