We want our residencies, programmes, and resources to be open, inclusive, and welcoming to all. We are currently reviewing how we work towards achieving greater equality within all levels of our organisation and across all programmes.
We actively encourage applications from all backgrounds and communities, from ethnically diverse people, people with disabilities, and all those who have been historically underrepresented within the cultural sector. Our intention is to better reflect society as a whole in our programme in terms of race, religion, ability, gender, sexuality, age and socio-economic status.

The data contained within your application will not be used for any purpose other than short-listing, running, and evaluating the programme. We will not share your details with any third parties without obtaining permission from you to do so.
