The Micro Residency programme is a research and development opportunity for artists at any stage of their career. Designed to foster experimentation and innovation, the Micro Residencies allow the participants to engage in an intensive six week period of production, testing and investigation while living in the onsite apartments. The programme enables artists to explore new ideas out with their normal practice whilst benefiting from ESW’s facilities and staff support allowing residents to develop their ideas without the pressure of producing work for public exhibition.
