Residencies

Taking up a residency is still one of the most inspiring and rewarding opportunities for cultural practitioners, artists and their practices to thrive and unfold. Grounding and developing work in a different location and context nurtures creative thinking processes and offers new perspectives on subject matter.
In the UK the Goethe-Institut collaborates with distinguished cultural organisations such as the V&A, LUX, Gasworks, Space, Delfina Foundation, amongst others to create innovative genre-crossing residency programmes.
