Stiwdio Maelor

Stiwdio Maelor

Artist / Writer in residence program


Stiwdio Maelor offers artists and writers working in any discipline the opportunity to undertake self-directed residencies in their converted studio in an ex-mining village in the Snowdonia National Park. It was set up in July 2014 to provide residency opportunities for artists and writers from the UK and other parts of the world. Creators are invited to take time out of their busy lives, visit a stunning area in North Wales, refocus on their work, and find new inspiration. Stiwdio Maelor provides residencies with low cost accommodation for visual artists and writers.

OPEN CALL for Stiwdio Maelor’s annual competition 2021.  They are open to accepting all media. The deadline is 19th July 2021.

  • 1st Prize – 2 week residency
  • 2nd Prize – 2 day print retreat
  • Student Prize – 1 week residency

This residency is fundamentally about process rather than production and can last either 1 - 12 weeks. During this residency you might explore the area and be inspired, test a new idea or way of working, or just get away from the daily routines of the studio. This resource offers you the opportunity to invest focused time and thought in your practice without the demands or expectations of making resolved new works.
