Metal Peterborough Artist Callout

Metal Peterborough currently have a call out for our Artist in Residence programme.



We’re excited to announce the call-out for our 2023 artist residency programme. We’re offering opportunities to artists working in any artform, at any stage of their career, who live, work or have a strong connection to our local area!


Each residency artist will receive a £1000 bursary, use of facilities in our buildings (including studio and rehearsal space) and staff time to support your research. You’ll also be joining a cohort of other cross-disciplinary artists in residence with us, and you’ll have the opportunity to participate in our other programmes, such as our Metal New Artist Network.


We’re looking for people who are:

🔎 excited to immerse themselves into the residency

🔎 engaging with the issues of our time

🔎 developing a socially-engaged practice.


Though it isn’t compulsory, we have a particular interest in artists and ideas that respond in some way to our places. This could be via connections with people, passions, histories, landscape or other aspects of the places and communities we are part of.


Apply by Tuesday 2 May at 5pm via this link: 🤞


If you have any questions or queries then please feel free to get in touch.


Many thanks,
