Posted on January 9, 2017.

Greatmore Studios has a long and proud history of supporting Art Making and the development of an artists’ professional practice. While focusing on supporting emerging artists, Greatmore Studios strongly recognises the importance of connecting with the public: We are aware of the impact that the arts has on societies, its role in widening horizons, supporting social cohesion and promoting innovative thinking.

As such, the organisation is deeply committed to developing participatory projects, learning activities and other public events that engage and inspire audiences of all ages. Greatmore currently houses 12 studios with full time resident artists as well as visiting artists who get selected to participate in a 3 months artist in residency program.

Workshops, exhibitions, presentations, talks, performances, visiting artists and social events are all part of our itinerary within this stimulating environment.

Successful applicants will be offered an initial 3 month contract which can be extended to three years after review from 1 FEBRUARY 2017.
