Ugly Duck is offering early career artists and creatives a residency opportunity between 2 and 7 days at our central London location (Studio only). You will have use of the space from 10 am to 6 pm, days are flexible

The residency aims to support and help advance the participating artists by offering free studio space and time to develop and produce new work, as well as a platform through which to engage with the public and share and develop their ideas.

We are particularly interested in live art, performance, dance and spoken word projects that address social, political and environmental issues. Some project can end with a public presentation such as an open studio, sharing or workshop.

As part of our main missions of supporting under represented artists we particularly encourage BIPOC and LGBTQI+ to apply.
