WFH Residency

Artquest's WFH Residency is a £1000 award to support artists during the covid-19 / coronavirus pandemic.

Artists are starting to report a collapse in work and higher levels of unemployment as the UK responds to the covid-19 / coronavirus pandemic. Reliant on the gig economy for income as technicians, visiting tutors, and in jobs outside of the arts, this residency provides financial support for artists and encourages digital, community-focussed activity while following current government guidelines around social distancing.

The WFH Residency ('working from home') opportunity is for London based artists who have had arts projects or other work cancelled as result of the covid-19 / coronavirus pandemic lockdown. It will particularly support projects that take a co-operative or communal approach and connect people while social distancing.

A total of 4 awards will be made from April to July.

Applications are open from 10am Monday 30 March until 10am Monday 1 July 2020 and may be extended or reduced depending on current guidance around social distancing and any increase in paid work elsewhere. Each month, one submission will be selected for the award.
