2019 Theme: Space Between

Applications for the Graduate Residency 2019 are now closed.

About the theme

The year's theme draws inspiration from both our heritage and our ambitions for the future. We look to explore the transition from past to emerging technologies, tracking the state of flux while developing teaching and learning in both established and emerging disciplines.

The communications sector is evolving fast. Since the very beginning of LCC in 1894, the world around us has changed significantly; the creative industries are adapting, and so are we.

With change comes new challenges, new possibilities and new opportunities. We continue to be inspired by our heritage while exploring new ways of working, thinking and making – from the recent launch of our MA Virtual Reality, to our plans for a cutting-edge new building.

LCC not only keeps up with the changes around us, but we approach problem-solving creatively, leading the development of innovations and developing new solutions.

Who should apply

This year we were interested in proposals for projects and collaborations that explore practices, process, careers and industries which have existed for centuries alongside all those that don’t exist – yet.

We’re curious to explore the intersection of tradition and future, to find the drivers of social and economic change.

What to expect

LCC supports 5 residents with £8,750 per individual or collective residency project. We offer access to our creative community, expert support, industry-standard facilities, materials and/or production budget to support the development of the project and space to experiment. We'll support you on your way to making a tangible difference to communities locally, nationally and across the world.

How to apply

The Graduate Residency was open to all LCC graduates who live and are eligible to work in the UK and to those who have graduated from LCC within the last 5 years (within the 2013/14 academic year or more recently).
