The Royal Standard Artist Residency Programme 2009

The Royal Standard invites artists working in all media and at any stage in their career to apply for its 2009 Artist Residency Programme.

About The Royal Standard

The Royal Standard is an artist-led gallery and studios with an ambitious, experimental gallery programme incorporating exhibitions, events, talks, exchanges and residencies. Housed in a 5000 sqft former print works on the Northern periphery of Liverpool city centre, The Royal Standard's three purpose-built gallery spaces sit amid a busy, social studio complex which provides a day-to-day hub for a lively, dynamic group of 27 artists with diverse approaches and backgrounds.

The Royal Standard is committed to offering artists the freedom to experiment with ideas and realise ambitious projects, supported by peer critique and engagement, access to our extensive gallery and workshop spaces, and the curatorial and administrative support to engage audiences and expand networks.

About the Residency

Two artists will be selected to work in our gallery space for a period of 21 days each followed by a week-long exhibition opportunity. However, the presentation of the work produced during the residency is not restricted to a conventional exhibition format and could take the form of an event, discussion, screening, performance, etc. Resident artists will have sole use of The Royal Standard's gallery space and access to all our facilities and equipment, and will be supported by a 500 artist fee, up to 750 materials, free accommodation with practising artists in Liverpool, travel expenses and marketing of related events / exhibitions by The Royal Standard.

The artists will receive ongoing support from the directors of The Royal Standard throughout the residency period and the conception and delivery of the outcome. Opportunities to meet with local artists, initiatives and curators will also be made available, in addition to the benefits of working in a new studio environment with an extended social network.
