Vacant Room: Space Residency

Vacant Room Shared Residency offers three interdisciplinary artists or groups a shared, space only three-week residency at PACT. A professional mentor will work with and support each artist throughout the three weeks and the residency will culminate in a showing for an invited audience.

Vacant Room offers artists space, support and the creative freedom to test new ideas. Vacant Room is not a rehearsal space, but a program for creative development of an idea-driven investigation. It is about the artistic process: creating a space to let an idea germinate and open up new avenues of creative practice through experimentation and critical feedback.

The 2017 Vacant Room residents are Claudia OsborneLaurence Rosier Staines, and Bonnie Cowan
