The Creative Fellowship scheme is an annual programme of residencies with the National Trust at The Workhouse, Southwell.
The Fellowship is intended to support the production of new creative work, in collaboration with researchers, responding to this fascinating site and engaging audiences in its history through creative means. From its foundation, the workhouse system cared for those in need. It was a homeless shelter, a children’s home, a care home, a hospital, a school and a job centre; the Welfare State in embryonic form. Today we see the inheritance of this system all around us. In 2017 the Workhouse wish to focus on ‘sickness and health’ exploring the path the workhouse and its residents took from paupers to patients over nearly 200 years.

Deadline for expressions of interest: Noon, Monday 10 October 2016.
