Updated: 23 November 2021

Work/Leisure is inviting emerging and mid-career artists to create new work.

Across its two previous iterations, Work/Leisure has delivered 7 short-term, non-prescriptive artist residencies designed to enable artists to research and develop new work in the historically and culturally unique location of Blackpool.

Through this third iteration of Work/Leisure, Abingdon Studios is inviting artists to Blackpool during 2 key phases of the town’s tourist season – Spring and Summer – and looking to support 3 artists to research and develop new work at Abingdon Studios.

Eligibility: UK based contemporary visual artists of all ages.

What you get: Successful applicants will be provided with an overall budget of £1000. Administrative and curatorial support will be provided by the W/L team, Abingdon Studios, and residency partners. Abingdon Studios retains a modest contingency budget to cover the reasonable travel and accommodation costs associated with the artist's time in residence. This budget is managed in dialogue with the successful applicants in support of their project/s.
