Projects and residencies

Mary Paterson and Genevieve Maxwell A Walk of View (she began to dissolve)

We are dedicated to supporting artists to develop their careers, investing in their practices and providing a springboard for their creativity.

We aim to support artists from a range of backgrounds and at various stage of careers by increasing development and production opportunities. We also partner with other organisations on research projects related to contemporary art.

Artist Development

RESIDENCIES

Spike Island has hosted a range of artists’ and writers’ residencies over many years, leading to the creation of new work ranging from debut novels to feature-length films.

“I was writer in residence at Spike Island on an Arts Council England funded project. Spike Island is an incredibly supportive space for emerging artists like myself. The team provided me with practical support for running amazing, sell-out events. More importantly, their boundless enthusiasm for my project, their emotional support, and the generosity they all showed me, led to a brilliantly successful four months that changed my life. ” – Sian Norris, writer in residence, 2017
