Autumn Interdisciplinary Residency information:

  • Dates: 23 October - 6 November 2023
  • The recipient will be awarded a £500 stipend which covers a research bursary and travel
  • The New Contemporaries alumni will be in residence with 8 other interdisciplinary practitioners.
  • The residency at Hospitalfield includes full board with meals prepared by their chef on weekdays. Accommodation is provided within Hospitalfield House and cottage. You can work within the historic rooms and contemporary studio spaces in the house as well as outside in the grounds.
  • For more information please see:
  • In 2023, residents will not have access to the historic artist studios and so the artists in residence will be living and working in the House and grounds at Hospitalfield where there are a number of shared and solo work spaces which are better suited to ‘neat’ practices.


  • You must have exhibited as part of New Contemporaries between 2016 and 2022 inclusive.
  • You must agree to produce a minimum of 1 piece of digital content for the New Contemporaries website over the residency
