Block 336 is launching a new studio residency! A free, well-lit studio will be provided on site at Block 336 for 3 months. Applications are invited from artists currently living in the boroughs of Lewisham, Southwark, Lambeth or Wandsworth. The studio sits between the main gallery and entrance gallery and will be shared with an artist that is an existing tenant. The total studio space is 26 sq meters with the resident offered one half of this.
Following the end of the 3-month residency period, Block 336 will host a public-facing open-studio where the artist can present the work they’ve made.
As part of the submission, we would like to know why this opportunity would be beneficial for you and what you would like to achieve during the residency.
