This is a voluntary scheme whereby emerging artists and designers are given access to ECA facilities and studio space, for which there would be no charge, and the opportunity to develop new skills and experiences through assisting staff with guiding students in developing their creative practice.
A small number of places are available in the following disciplines:
- Fashion
- Glass
- Graphic Design
- Illustration
- Jewellery and Silversmithing
- Product and Design Informatics
- Textiles

Each residency will start in September and run to the end of August, with a maximum duration of 12 months (confirmed dates will be agreed with the discipline areas within one month of interview and offer).


Skills/experience required for the Artist in Residence role:
- A graduate in the specific discipline or a closely related area
- Good communication skills, including the ability to concisely explain/impart knowledge, skills and a new perspective to students
- Enthusiasm and flexibility with regards to gaining experience within the subject area and ECA as a whole

It is desirable that a candidate has a developing creative design practice and would be able to articulate this experience to design students.
The role provides an opportunity to share practice in an educational setting. The University’s Institute for Academic Development has a wide range of short courses and drop in sessions that are accessible to all artists in residence, staff and students to support demonstrating, teaching and pastoral support activities.
