A brand new project in Cumbria to showcase world class creativity is looking for three artists to make new artwork. Poets, visual and digital artists, writers, theatre and film makers and composers from across the UK are encouraged to apply for one of three ÂŁ25,000 opportunities.

Selected artists will need to be based physically in Cumbria during their residency. As well as making and presenting their own dynamic new work, they will contribute in a tangible way to the thriving artistic community that already exists in this extraordinary place.

The Catalyst residencies will take place between May 2024 and February 2025. A fee of ÂŁ25,000 is available for each selected artist. This is to include all costs incurred during the residency, including living and travel costs, any materials and making costs, as applicable, and fees relating to shows or performances.

The closing date for applications is 3 March 2024.
