Residencies for east London-based creatives, communities and collectives.

Are you an east London-based creative practitioner, community organiser, artist, or collective?


The East Bank partners; V&A East, LCF, BBC, Sadlers Wells, and UCL, are launching a 5-month residency program that runs from Autumn 2022 to Spring 2023.

V&A East, London College of Fashion, UAL and UCL East, are looking for applications creative practitioners, small-scale creative organisations and collectives from across east London who want to investigate themes of migration and social practice. This opportunity is for creatives who want to innovate, experiment and develop new practice while pushing conventional boundaries of form and structure.

This year, we are looking for three residents to partner with:

  • London College of Fashion, UAL
  • V&A East
  • UCL East

We also want to hear ideas from creatives beyond these themes: what are the vital issues in today’s world, and within your community, that you want to explore with these institutions? 

As a resident with East Bank, you can expect:

  • To be hosted by your institution: you will have up to 80 hours of contact time across the five-month residency, which could include desk space, time in a studio, meeting rooms, access to archives and collections, and invitations to events;
  • A facilitated creative journey: you will have a point of contact at your paired institution who will facilitate your residency, and you’ll also be connected with other residents to share experiences, tools and knowledge, and come together in community;
  • A process-centred approach: residencies are focused on process, research, learning, development, collaboration and relationship building, rather than a final product or pre-defined outcome;

To receive funding of up to £5,000: to support your time, your collaborators time, and materials or resources that you might need for your residency.
