Glasgow Sculpture Studios supports a vibrant community of professional artists who focus on innovative sculptural techniques and practices. This wide-ranging community are at varying stages of their careers, from emergent and recent graduates through to established artists whose practice is recognised at the highest level. Residencies are aimed at contemporary visual artists, who are working nationally and/or internationally for whom a change of scenery might offer fresh inspiration; offering the artists a dedicated studio and access to all artists facilities and artists support programmes with a view to realising a major project or body of work that is disseminated as part of the public programme in the gallery. Research residencies support a writer, scholar, academic, curator or researcher working nationally and/or internationally, to support existing projects and the development of new ideas over a sustained period of time.
