The Artists’ Research Centre runs a programme of research fellowships, working in collaboration with universities, galleries and other partners. The Fellowships are based on an articulation of artists’ practice as long form research, intended as a model of substantial, long term support for artists outside the model of exhibitions and commission.
Each Fellowship comprises a period of supported research for the selected artist and a related public program of events investigating and supporting their chosen area of research.
Fellowships are awarded via invitation and run for a period of between 6 – 12 months. The Artists’ Research Centre also welcomes project proposals from artists wishing to expand their practice through undertaking new research. Proposals should include an artists’ statement and an outline of the proposed project and research area. You must contact ARC prior to submitting any proposals.
In addition to the Fellowships the Artists’ Research Centre also curates and produces a programme of exhibitions, events and performance with partners around the UK. The projects programme operates in collaboration with galleries and arts organisations to enable large scale events with artists rooted in experimentation and the development of new work.
The Artists’ Research Centre research programme is a growing resource, drawing together new ideas, research, thinking and innovative practice from programme, partners and wider research community. The research programme seeks to make connections between our projects and across disciplines both via our online archive of projects and publications, new writing commissions and live events, symposia and conferences.
We are currently accepting submissions of articles and essays, which link to the themes of our projects, for publication online. If you could like to make a submission, please send a short bio and copy of your text to
