Haarlem Artspace provides quality, dedicated studio space for contemporary artists, writers and other creative businesses alongside a public programme of cutting-edge exhibitions, talks and events designed to engage and inspire. The residency invites five artists, writers, curators or researchers to join us in the space for four days plus the final conference day. This will be an opportunity to join our studio holders and associates and guests from Instituto Procomum in Brazil, our partners on the British Council’s Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies programme for five days of dynamic activity. The residency is jointly facilitated and co-curated by artist Alice Gale-Feeny and artist and Haarlem Artspace Director, Olivia Punnett.
