Summer Studios 2023
Summer Studios are free, six-day residencies throughout August for artists; musicians, bands, producers, rappers and singers of all genres.
The programme helps provide time for artists to create new work, develop their music or prepare for a performance. A one-week residency can provide a great kickstart or boost to a creative project.
