Shawbrook awards 24 residency weeks to International dance artists and other artists included in dance projects and dance companies.
Shawbrook advertises an Open Call via website www.shawbrook.org and social media platforms late Autumn. The directors and board members will make a selection.
Artists at any stage of their career can apply. We encourage artists to apply for projects that will be enhanced and enriched by our rural location and natural environment.
Shawbrook provides 3 studios, 2 performance spaces indoor and outdoor, an outdoor fire seated area, access to forest, meditation room, Summer House, Sauna, laundry, catering if requested, accommodation in a fully equipped apartment, bedsit, dormitory that sleeps 5 and forest cabins. The Directors invite artists to share a fire night and meal on Thursday evenings, and if they wish to share their work before departure on Friday.
Some of the residencies are funded by the Arts Council, but can also be privately funded, it does not include travel or food.
These residencies should be seen as a retreat and not depending on being “connected”.
