Program Description:

The Fish Factory Art Space CIC is offering a rolling programme of 2-4 week residencies at it's new venue in Penryn, Cornwall. Opened in 2011 by local artist Rose Hatcher, the Fish Factory has provided a forum for both Cornish emerging artists and international collaborators working in challenging and diverse mediums from interactive installations, to murals, to photomontage, printmaking, music and film. We are looking for artists that want to engage with our lively and varied programme of contemporary, alternative and innovative visual arts, performance and events.

Fish Factory Art Space inhabits a former sail loft in Penryn, Cornwall, South West England. It houses studios, a small event space/independant gallery, a vegan cafe and a small shop. Running since 2011 the Fish Factory has recently moved from it's former home on Falmouth Wharves to a new permanent space in Penryn. The diverse offerings have one thing in common: that they flourish in the open and welcoming atmosphere the Fish Factory offers. A definite alternative to the corporate mainstream face of modern art today.

We will provide you with a desk space in our open plan co-work space, as well access to our shared print making, b/w darkroom and photography studio. In addition you can take advantage of our vegan cafe, small art shop and our acoustic recording studio (by arrangement).

You will have the option of holding a public event and exhibition, but this is not essential as we see this residency as more a way for you to develop a project, network and a chance to experience the Cornish art scene.

Residency costs: £200-£350 (2-4wks). You will be required to pay a 50% non-refundable deposit on acceptance of your place.

We can provide a range of accommodation for the duration of your stay from £150- £350, please ask us for more information on these options.

Please specify dates you would like to attend in your application.
