The 2017 Artquest research residency

Artquest, in partnership with the Horniman, are offering a research residency for one London based artist to focus on our music collection.

  • Music Gallery, Peter Cook
    , Peter Cook

The award includes:

  • £3000 to engage with the work and collections of the Horniman
  • £850 towards a public facing event showcasing the thinking and research undertaken during the residency
  • Privileged access to museum objects and curators

We are particularly interested in developing relationships with artists who want to engage with people as well as collections. Applicants should consider in particular how their work might engage visitors with the Horniman's music collection and encourage participation with these displays. 

Please note, that this is not a studio residency and applicants are expected to have their own studio / workspace to complete any work.

Find out if you are eligible for the residency and apply on Artquest by 10am on Monday 24 July 2017.
