Wide Open is pleased to announce MAKING SPACE, a new residency programme in Torbay, South Devon providing space and time for artists to develop their creative practice with tailored producer support.


What is Making Space?

MAKING SPACE is a rolling, monthly residency programme for artists at any stage of their career that supports artistic practice across diverse art forms including and not limited to: live performance/arts, film / photography, digital media, visual arts and combined arts. Applications are invited from local, national and international artists, or arts collectives, who will be given space-based creation time to develop their work or new ways of working alongside producer and mentoring support as requested. There are no fees or monetary payments with this residency offer. A modest bursary can be applied for to assist with access costs where the residency would not be possible without it.
