Since 2003 CFCCA has coordinated a residency programme which invites artists, researchers and writers to live and work in a purpose built studio within our building. Additionally, we work with partner organisations to develop the careers of UK-based artists and foster cultural exchange, through international exchange programmes.
Our residency programme gives artists an international platform from which to raise their profile, dedicated space and time to develop projects, and curatorial and practical support from CFCCA’s team – while enriching the existing arts ecology of Manchester. Each resident at CFCCA will have support to deliver public-facing projects, workshops and talks, as well as a short exhibition or Open Studio. We support our residents to connect with the local arts ecology, organisations and communities in the city and nationally, in line with their practice and research.
Our 2019 exchange programmes include Taipei Artist Village, Taipei and Videotage, Hong Kong. These exchanges support UK-based artists to develop their practice and research in a new context, and promote transnational cultural and artistic exchange.
All residency opportunities are advertised on our Opportunities page.
