Current residencies

RSA ‘Residencies for Scotland’

Closing date: Sunday 23rd January


The RSA (Royal Scottish Academy of Arts and Architecture) ‘Residencies for Scotland’ is an artist-led scheme which provides valuable research and residency opportunities for artists. It forges important networks with centres of artistic excellence across Scotland.

Open to visual artists currently living and working in Scotland for at least the past 3 years (or Scottish by birth) at all stages of their careers, the emphasis is on enabling a period of research, development and production, as well as on the acquisition and exchange of new skills and experiences.

Artists can apply for funds of up to £5,000 and are responsible for managing their own residency, in discussion with the partner venue which we are delighted to say includes Marchmont with our fabulous Old Squash Court (pictured) or The Tower venues available along with Studio Cottage, Fogo – originally the printmaking studio of the artist and musician Rory McEwen.

Interestingly collaborative applications are also accepted and the closing date is midnight on Sunday 23 January.
