1st June for Early Career Residencies 2018

Cove Park

Cove Park


COVE PARK operates an artistic programme of residencies that are developed through partnerships with organisations in the arts, education, cultural and business sectors in Scotland, the UK and abroad. Artists in residence are given the time, space, freedom and financial support to concentrate on the development of their work. Cove Park provides a supportive context in which artists can devise new projects, experiment and engage with artists working in different fields or with different approaches to their practice. They are happy to support and facilitate the production of specific projects during residencies and, equally, to ensure that those artists who wish to develop new ideas without the constraints of the completion of a final piece of work are free to do so. Residencies can have a focus on the following disciplines: visual arts, crafts, architecture, literature (most of the time for Scottish writers), and performing arts + music. Some residencies are directly funded by Cove Park and take place on invitation or per open call (with deadline). Some residencies are self-funded and take place in the off season (between late September and December). Please email to check availability on your preferred dates. Cove Park creates year-round residencies in all the art forms for national and international artists, collaborative groups and organisations.

Accommodation Information 

Outside of the artistic season COVE PARK is available to hire by groups and individuals. A range of uses can be accommodated, from corporate events, training, think-tanks and away-days to private hires for leisure, retreat or artistic development.
