What is the Jerwood Writer in Residence 2022 programme?

The Jerwood Writer in Residence 2022 programme is an opportunity for UK-based early-career visual arts writers to develop their practice.

There are two Jerwood Writer in Residence opportunities in 2022. Each residency is six months long and writers are invited to produce up to five new critical responses to both Jerwood Arts’ Exhibitions and Events programme at Jerwood Space in London, and Jerwood Arts’ wider work.

The two residency slots are:

– Residency 1: January – June 2022
Responding to Jerwood Art Fund Makers Open and Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022

– Residency 2: July – December 2022
Responding to Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 and Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2022

The two selected writers will each receive:

– £1,500 fee
– £500 production budget to disseminate thinking and research through means of either an event, DIY publication, video recording, podcast or other activity
– £300 budget for mentoring
– Editorial support from the Jerwood Arts team
– Publishing through the Writing & Media section of the Jerwood Arts website
