Artist Development


Whether you’re an emerging artist with a new idea, an established artist working towards your next project, or a curious individual trying something new for the first time, Arts Lab can help support your development.



Workshops & Events

Tailored specifically for artists, we are developing a series of workshops and events.

Go to our Artists page in Get Involved to see what’s coming up.

Advice sessions

From finding funding to talking about your practice, we offer advice and information by email or a friendly chat by appointment.

We offer a year-round programme of artist residencies across various disciplines.

Whether it’s time in the Lab or using our industry-leading professional media equipment, we are happy to talk with you about what tools are available to help you realise your next project.

We are an artist-led organisation with a strong community of practicing artists and makers. All of our formal residencies include professional mentoring, and we can arrange individual mentoring for artists through the Arts Lab network.

Leadership opportunities

If you are looking to try new ideas with a receptive audience, Arts Lab can help you host a workshop or find keen individuals to collaborate.

Submissions and open calls

We regularly review artists’ submissions for consideration in our exhibitions and live programme events. To find out more about how we programme and our strong ties to collaboration, see our submissions guide.
