A creative residency at Studio Wayne McGregor for emerging artists pushing the boundaries of dance, movement and physical intelligence.

RESIDENT 6 will invite six artists to make Studio Wayne McGregor their home for a year, with support from the Jerwood Developing Artists Fund and Here East. With the studio building as their home, the RESIDENT 6 artists will have access to the studio’s full range of spaces for making, researching, experimenting, collaborating and sharing. Each artist will receive:

– Access to world-class studios and workspaces – £5,000 of development funding

– Support for public sharings

– Personal mentorship from Wayne McGregor

– Training in, and use of, the Studio Wayne McGregor Smart Studio comprising five remote operated cameras and a live-editing suite to livestream activity across the globe

– The extensive experience of their expert team, and wider Here East innovation community

– Access to the studio’s unparalleled national network of creative and digital partners

– Introductions into their global network of creative people, places and institutions

– Light touch support beyond the end of the residency programme


They are looking for emerging artists based in London, from any artform or background, with at least three years of professional output. All artists will be seeking to push the boundaries of physical intelligence, benefitting from the studio’s focus on the intersection of dance and digital innovation, and at least one artist will be selected whose practice holds community collaboration at its core.
