D’CLINIC is a place for artists to meet and participate in an activity that is both geographically and conceptually removed from their usual studio practice. Artists are enabled to work intensively and independently, in an encouraging and intimate environment



Our residency season generally runs between April and November; each month we can host up to 4 artists within two different residency programmes.
