Artist Residency

The Little Van Gogh Residency offers an artist space and a concentrated period for independent work and creative risk-taking. This opportunity is intended to nurture advances in artistic process, free from the pressures and expectations of their usual practice.

The impact of a residency often reaches well beyond the session itself. Co-judge Tim Craven, curator at Southampton City Art Gallery explains, “Being able to experience a new environment is a brilliant way for artists to kick start new ideas. The launch of Little Van Gogh’s residency will have a highly positive impact on the development of all the artists who take part.”

The Little Van Gogh residency is an opportunity offered to an artist in the Little Van Gogh network every two years. Inviting an artist to take a period of time out of their usual practice, they are awarded accommodation and studio space in the village of Ashurst inside the New Forest national park. The artist is also awarded £500 towards material costs and a £100 travel contribution.

The Little Van Gogh Residency has been an incredible experience for all artists who have taken part, allowing them to immerse themselves in a natural and nourishing environment, breaking free of the burdens of their daily lives and flourishing creatively.
