This year the South London Gallery Graduate Residency is an open submission six month residency opportunity available to artists completing a postgraduate MA, MFA, PGDip, MRes or equivalent programme of study, from a national institution, collective, or art school in the UK between October 2015 and October 2016. 

Between November 2016 and May 2017, the resident will receive the following:

  • rent-free accommodation and work space in the South London Gallery’s Outset Artists’ Flat;
  • a bursary of £5,000 towards living expenses and production costs;
  • monthly mentoring sessions with invited artists, curators and writers, as well as the Director and staff of the South London Gallery;
  • an exhibition in the SLG’s first floor galleries. 

The residency enables the production of a new body of work and a rare opportunity for a recent graduate to exhibit within an internationally renowned institution.
