Could you be an artist in residence?
Develop your practice at the Sir John Soan's Museum
Apply to be an artist in residence at Sir John Soane's Museum and develop your practice in the museum’s historic Drawing Office.
Within Sir John Soane’s Museum, the Drawing Office is the earliest surviving example of a working architectural office. To mark the 200th anniversary of its installation, Sir John Soane’s Museum began a programme of restoration, new multi-layered digital interpretation, and the launch of the Museum’s first residency programme in 2023.
The historic importance of the Museum, its archive and collections are well known. What is less well known is the work the Museum does with contemporary artists and the relevance of the Museum and its collection to artists, architects and designers practicing now.
The residency will enable Sir John Soane’s Museum to develop its work with contemporary practitioners, whilst complementing the broader work of the organisation.
Two artist residents will be hosted annually from 2024, for three months each, during the Spring (March to May) and the Autumn (September to November).
It's FREE to enter, and artists from around the world are welcome to apply.
Eligibility: Artists, designers, makers and creatives working in various media are encouraged to apply, provided that drawing plays a central role in their practice.
