The London Summer Intensive is a four-week residency programme for artists offered by the Slade School of Fine Art and Camden Arts Centre. The Slade is a vibrant, world-renowned international art school, and Camden Arts Centre is an influential space for contemporary art exhibitions and education.

The residency will run throughout August 2016 and focus on independent studio practice, supported by an artist facilitator and an exciting series of visiting artists. It will reflect the dynamic, rigorous and open-ended approaches to artmaking championed by both institutions and provide a stimulating and flexible environment for 21 artists from all over the world to experiment and make new work. Artists will work in studios and workshop spaces at the Slade Research Centre, Woburn Square in Bloomsbury, close to the British Museum, and the galleries of Soho and the West End.

The programme will include artist talks, evening lectures, studio discussions—both in groups and one-on-one—social events, a day trip to the Whitstable Biennale, and curatorial and professional development. Central to the programme is a focus on working as an artist in London, a city which offers opportunities to investigate multidisciplinary practice and visit public arts institutions, commercial galleries and artist-run spaces. Each participating artist will shape his or her own experience, striking a personal balance between independent studio time and the programme.

The London Summer Intensive concludes with a critique and showcase of ideas and works-in-progress at Camden Arts Centre’s Artists’ Studio. Participating artists will work with each other and with curators at Camden Arts Centre to inhabit the shared space.

The London Summer Intensive is in its second year. The inaugural residency brought together 21 practicing artists from 13 different countries, providing a diverse and exciting working environment. Visiting artists and curators in 2015 included: Faisal Abdu’allah, Caroline Achaintre, Simon Faithfull, Mark Godfrey, Dryden Goodwin, Anne Hardy, Paul Johnson, Harold Offeh and Phoebe Unwin. The application process is open now. Successful applicants will be working at post graduate level or have equivalent experience working as a practicing artist. The selection panel will be chaired by Susan Collins, Slade Professor and Jenni Lomax, Director of Camden Arts Centre. Those who apply by December 7, 2015 will receive a 5% reduction in fees; the registration process will remain open until February 2016.

Please see the website for more details about the programme and how to apply.
