Residencies & Exchange

Our residency facility accommodates up to two creative practitioners at any time. It encourages practitioners from all different disciplines (eg: creative-writing, music, visual arts, choreography, moving-image, curation to cultural research…) to test new ideas whilst being immersed in Folkestone’s unique cultural contexts and supported by CT20’s creative team and a thriving artistic community.
The Themed Research Residencies are developed & funded by CT20 to generate specific outcomes with residents selected via open-calls or invitation.
The OPEN Residencies is a self-funded programme that invites applications from all backgrounds to develop new work for a period up to three months. We encourage artists and curators to discuss potential projects and funding plans as early as possible.
