Octopus encourages artists to come and spend time with us to research and make new work at our Piel View House studio space in Barrow-in-Furness Park.
Previous resident artists have included:
During 2012/13 we will be offering 4 residencies for artists working with sound, consisting of up to 3 visits to Barrow leading to a performance, presentation or talk. Work produced during residencies will also feature as part of our next edition of the FON Festival in Summer 2013.
A fourth residency will be offered via an open call to North West based emerging and early career practitioners in June. Please re-visit this page for details or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list.
We also offer free use of our studio spaces for short projects and subsidised rent for longer term occupancy. Please contact us for details.
