A 10 month artist-led programme to develop an ambitious creative project, with a showcase for the project at The Glasshouse.

Meet The Glasshouse Artists in Residence 2023-24

The Glasshouse International Centre for Music is excited to be working with two inspiring musicians as Artists In Residence in 2023-24. Hayden Thorpe and Faye MacCalman will work on ambitious projects from autumn 2023, creating new work with live experiences ready to share in 2024.

Hayden and Faye were chosen from an impressive range of applicants from across the region who answered an open call out looking for the most exciting artists in the North.

As an Artist in Residence, they have access to funding, investment in a creative project of their choosing, a residential retreat, rehearsal space, one to one advice and support, and a performance at The Glasshouse at the end of the residency.

Read more about them below. We’ll be sharing work, interviews and updates from each of them via our website and social channels during their residency.
