Gasworks Residency Open Call 2024

Program Details

This residency open call is for an early-career artist based in South Africa or Zimbabwe. The eleven-week, fully funded residency will take place at Gasworks in London from 30 September to 16 December 2024.

Their residencies programme supports professional development, cultural exchange, and artistic experimentation. We host up to sixteen residencies each year, bringing artists from all over the world to London. All our residencies are self-led, non-prescriptive and process-based; they are about enabling artists to research and develop new work, engage with the city, and build their networks.

They provide administrative, pastoral, and curatorial support throughout the residency, but also expect residents to be self-motivated, and to lead on the research and production of their own work, during their time with us.


  • The open call is for early-career contemporary visual artists based in South Africa or
    Zimbabwe only.
  • We welcome applications from contemporary visual artists of all ages, working in
    any discipline.
  • Applicants should have at least a moderate level of spoken English and feel comfortable discussing their work in English.
