Summer Lodge Residency

We are now accepting applications for individual artists to join the Summer Lodge, 2nd -13th July 2018. The Summer Lodge is an annual event where, for ten days each July, the Fine Art studios of Nottingham Trent University (NTU) are transformed and play host to a gathering of thirty diverse artists. It is intended as an opportunity to think through making by being able to work for a while without many of the usual constraints and distractions. It is a collective space in which to undertake experiments, pursue new ideas and allow unexpected leaps of imagination. Participants in the Summer Lodge will include current NTU staff, artists working nationally and internationally, and student studio assistants with the aim of initiating new dialogues and critical exchange through engaging together in a period of sustained studio practice.
