The Application Process

Your application should include:

  • A covering letter
  • A Residency work plan
  • An artist statement
  • A current CV
  • documentation of your work with an image/works list

Please note that the selection committee bases its decision solely on the information you provide. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure the technical compatibility of all application documentation transmitted. Late applications will not be considered.


The covering letter and work plan

Please tell us in detail how you hope to use the studio. This might include working on a commission, preparing for an exhibition, developing a body of work, or doing research. It is important to make clear specifically why you need residential space.

Please include a work plan, with details of a start date, the materials and processes you use and any requirements you have, such as wheelchair access. This information will help us provide you with the most suitable space.


Your CV and documentation

Send us an up-to-date CV (3 pages maximum) including your contact details and any of the following documentation with an image/works list:

  • Up to six still images (Jpeg files only, which must be less than 1MB each)
  • Up to 3 video showreels: web address (e.g. YouTube or Vimeo) of up to 6 minutes of footage.
  • Up to 3 sound files


Your application should be in a single email to and be received by us by the stated deadline.

Please check our FAQs or contact if you have any additional queries.

The Digital Media Award gave me the opportunity and taught me the skills to work in video which was an entirely new medium for me. Through the tutorial sessions and getting access to equipment at Fire Station, I was able to make work that opened up a whole new realm of my arts practice.
