Why being an artist in Residence?

Be in receipt of a project grant to develop a piece of work commissioned by Hiatus, access an amazing peer group of artists in an accessible and non-judgmental space, learn new skills and techniques for managing your barrier to self-expression, exhibit and display your work in public spaces, be encouraged into shaping and playing a part in our public programme of workshops, develop an artist’s professional development plan with Hiatus’ Founder to be able to access opportunities with Hiatus’ partners and supporters, influence a culture change within disability and communication throughout the UK and potentially wider and begin to change, through artistic practice, the perceptions of communication difficulties.
