D6

Our residency programme provides opportunities for artists to develop their practice. Furthermore we arrange artists talks and networking events for our residents so that they can be introduced to new networks and present their work to a wide audience. Our artists studio is based in our offices in Newcastle in the United Kingdom.

We offer funded residency opportunities throughout the year. If you are interested in financing a residency yourself or are planning on raising your own funding, please contact us at d6@d6culture.org.

Description of Organisation:

We are visual arts producers and policy advisors, promoting the role of artists in the sustainable development of our towns and cities.

Working with extraordinary artists and intrepid partners, we develop projects which capture and reveal the stories that unite us.  Through research, commissioning, and presentation our programme promotes the value of the arts in creating fairer, informed and more generous societies.

We are based in Newcastle Upon Tyne in North East England. Our offices and studios are based in the city centre within a 5 minutes walk of the train station and with close proximity to the airport.
