Applications are now invited for Cove Park's Crafts, Visual Arts and Literature residency programmes in 2017. These opportunities are available between May and September next year and located in Argyll and Bute. National and international artists at all stages in their careers are welcome to apply. Additional residency strands will run this year, including residencies for early-career artists supported by the Fenton Arts Trust.

Artists on residency are given the time, space and financial support to concentrate upon the development of their work. Cove Park provides a supportive context in which artists can devise new projects, experiment and engage with those working in different fields or with different approaches to their practice. Participating artists receive a fee, on-site accommodation and, when relevant, a private studio.

Application guidelines are available here. The application deadlines are:

Friday 2 December 2016 - Visual Arts

Monday 5 December 2016 - Crafts
