Artist Residency and Research Residency


ISIS Arts is a visual and media arts organisation, which runs an international programme of commissions, residencies and events. ISIS Arts’ core ethos is to support artists to make critically engaged visual and media art, which is locally significant and internationally relevant, and to share the learning and relationships it gains. ISIS works internationally with artists to produce and present contemporary art, film and new media. 

Its core programme is made up of artist residencies. Within any one year ISIS Arts develops residencies in partnership with a range of collaborators, bringing the artist's perspective to local and domestic issues often revealing global truths. Its programmes link international artists with regional and national artists to explore new dialogues around arts practice and local engagement.

ISIS is committed to showing work within the public realm, engaging as wide an audience as possible in dialogue with artists and artworks, making its projects accessible to a diverse public. Based in Newcastle city centre, ISIS has two studio spaces for visiting artists, a media training room, and an inflatable touring venue for sharing media arts with a wider audience. ISIS works with many international, national and regional artists to support practice and exchange.

ISIS Arts offers two types of residencies:

  • Research residencies: subsidised research residencies for regional, national and international visual and media artists for 3-4 weeks in ISIS' self-contained city-centre studios and training facility. 
  • Self-funded artist residencies: residency support for regional, national and international visual and media artists for agreed periods of up to a maximum of 3 months.
