We're looking for applications from recent visual arts graduates of the college for a two month residency at Plymouth School of Creative Arts.

The residency has been set up as a reaction to the challenge graduates sometimes face of finding affordable studio space and residency opportunities.

Plymouth School of Creative Arts, in partnership with the college, are looking for a graduate artist in residence to work in the city centre based, 4-16 all through school, initially for a two month period.  

The residency will give you the opportunity to network with other artists, members of the community and make professional connections to further your practice.

Plymouth School of Creative Arts students working with student Sam Akroyd on his Bretonside Project.

The school's amazing staff team and purpose-built space are only a small part of what makes the school special.

'Creating Individuals, Making Futures' is the school's purpose, and as such, everything they do is designed and intended to meet the children's aspiration.

Applicants for this residency should have graduated within the last three years and must embrace the opportunity to be in the new school building, alongside working with children and the community on creative and innovative projects.
