Leigh-on-Sea Town Council aims for Leigh Community Centre to be more than just a facility for room hire, it aspires to add to the creative life of the community and nurture artistic talent within the town. The Artist in Residence scheme contributes to this by allowing artists the opportunity to develop their work in the studio loft space at Leigh Community Centre.
The 12-month residency is open to artists from any art form which is appropriate to be carried out within the Centre and those that live or work in Leigh will have priority. The scheme offers studio hire at a reasonable price and the opportunity to curate exhibitions on the Art Wall within the Centre.
If you would like to be considered for the position please do contact the council for an application form. Applications close on 28.02.19. Interviews will take place the beginning of March with the residency commencing in April 2019.
