ABOUT DoremiResidency

‘DoremiResidency’ is an annual group residency that invites emerging artists from around the country to Cumbria to forge links between artists and arts organisations working in urban and rural settings. Now in it’s fourth year, previous residencies have taken place at The Merz Barn, the site of Kurt Schwitters’ last Merz Bau, in Elterwater; Florence Arts Centre, the site of the disused haematite mine, Florence Mine, in Egremont; and The Coniston Institute, a community run village hall in the heart of Coniston, in partnership with Grizedale Arts.

Participating artists have been nominated by partner organisations from around the country, including ACAVA (London), Art Gene (Cumbria), East Street Arts (Leeds), Full of Noises (Cumbria), Islington Mill (Manchester), The Newbridge Project (Newcastle) and October Gallery (London).
