An open call for UK based creative practitioners, who need time and support to develop ideas that blend art with technology.

A Winter Residency at Watershed offers funded time (between Jan to March 2022) to delve deeper into a creative idea, within a supportive community of practitioners. 

We have two residencies available offering:

  • 14-days in residence, in person at the Pervasive Media Studio (Bristol) and online
  • A bursary of £2,800 (tax inclusive) plus £500 for materials
  • A travel bursary to support temporary relocation to Bristol
  • The opportunity to focus intensively on the development of an idea
  • Tailored critical and technical support
  • A hand-picked mentor drawn from the Studio community
  • A structured process featuring research blogs, regular catch ups, discussions and sharing events
  • A peer community of potential collaborators for current and future projects

The programme will take place in Winter 2022 and we’re flexible about how you structure your time. This is an opportunity to develop an idea, meet incredible people, imagine, share and think.
