The Value of Artist Residencies

The Value of Artist Residencies

In response to the global Covid crisis of 2020 Guest Projects moved away from offering a physical project space, focusing instead on digitally enabling and supporting the creation of new works, trialling of ideas, creative programming and online community engagement.

Guest Projects Digital was conceived as a means of continuing to support multidisciplinary artists by providing access to digital and online resources regardless of physical and cultural barriers to collaboration and experimentation. The first Guest Projects Digital programme ran from June to October 2020 and facilitated four two-month residencies for curatorial collectives.

Upon completion, they were asked to contemplate the value of the programme considering the effect on their own practice alongside any tangible influence on the communities and groups they had engaged with throughout their residencies. These were their answers.
