Lots of residency deadlines have just passed with the end of the year, but I’ve spotted a number of great-looking current ones floating about, so I thought I’d flag them up in case anyone can benefit!

Quick rundown of some good-looking residencies (both artists and writers)

Hi all! Just a quick post today, as I’ve spotted a few residencies that look particularly cool and generous recently, with upcoming deadlines, and thought I’d share in case any are a good fit for any of you! Disclaimer: I’m not involved in any of these, and in most cases haven’t read all the fine print – just pointing them out, further research up to you! 😉 All listed offer accomodation w/out fees, some offer travel and stipends as well, and all accept international applications as far as I can tell.

Some of these close to applications in a few days, so if interested, get on it! (Worth checking if they need letters of support and whether there’s enough time to get those.)

Flotstunga, Iceland – for emerging/mid-career artists, best for development work. Super isolated. Offers accomodation and communal working and kitchen space. Artists cover travel, food, extra bits (eg. cost of shopping trips for supplies). Deadline Nov 13 Nov (for May/June).

Can Serrat International Art Centre, Spain – all arts disciplines – offers full stipend residencies which cover a month’s accomodation w/ breakfast and dinner.Next application deadline Nov 1, no application fee.

University of Windsor, Canada, Cartoonist-in-Residence – Canadian cartoonists. Huge, amazing-sounding four-month residency that my fellow Canadians should definitely have a look at!! You’ll have to sort housing, but the stipend is $20,000, so that should be fine. It’s not 100% set, as it’s contingent on funding. Deadline Nov 30th.
