* COVID-19 update: Amid the current crisis, Gasworks’ top priority is ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the artists, staff and the public.

In response to the escalating situation in the UK and internationally, the residency has now been re-scheduled to the autumn period.
Applications are now open until 29 June. Artists who already applied to this opportunity in April will be automatically included in the selection process. New applicants are welcome.
This opportunity will enable an emerging artist based in Peru to undertake a fully-funded residency at Gasworks, in London, from 28 September to 14 December 2020. Gasworks’ residencies are opportunities for self-led professional development, artistic exchange and experimentation. This residency is generously supported by ARTUS.
