Summer Art Trail: Artist Residency

Summer Art Trail invites emerging and established artists to apply to the 2016 arts festival with over £2000 worth of studio space, local and national advertising and support!

Our two month residency programme will give the chosen artist the opportunity to create ambitious and contemporary pieces beginning in July in the lead up to the festival. As well as a free studio space in the heart of Leicester, the selected artist will be guaranteed exhibition space for Summer Art Trail 2016, running alongside Leicester’s City Festival.

Based at LCB Depot, the studio has 24 hour access, free Wi-Fi, excellent lighting, sink basins and kitchen nearby, a café downstairs, located in the prime creative sector of Leicester and best of all…it’s completely free!

Last year’s Summer Art Trail attracted over 7,000 visitors from across the region. With bigger numbers expected for 2016 your work will be exhibited alongside a festival full of creative workshops, established exhibitions, collaborative performances, music events, artist talks and art stalls.

Summer Art Trail welcomes all emerging and established artists of all specialisms such as painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, film, sound, projection, live art and design of the highest quality.

Deadline: 1 June 2016
