Applications now closed for AER 2017

Applications accepted from UAL graduates, postgraduates and recent alumni (within 12 months from graduation date).

The Art for the Environment International Artist Residency Programme (AER) was launched in 2015 by member of the UAL Research Centre for Sustainable Fashionand UAL Chair of Art and the Environment Professor Lucy Orta.

AER provides UAL graduates with the exceptional opportunity to apply for a 2 to 4-week residency at one of our internationally renowned host institutions, to explore concerns that define the 21st century - biodiversity, environmental sustainability, social economy, and human rights.

Through research, studio practice, critiques and mentoring the AER programme is designed to envision a world of tomorrow; to imagine and create work that challenges how we interact with the environment and each other.

NOTE: These residencies cannot accommodate collective applications, only single applicants accepted.

Applications for the AER 2017 Residency Programme are now closed.

Visit the Postgraduate Community Blog to read the announcements of the selected residents and past year residency reports.
