Habitation: A Site for Artistic Research

The residency programme is the backbone of the Art Programme for North West Cambridge Development. Each year three artists are appointed to work in collaboration with three different University of Cambridge departments relevant to each phase of the development. This provides a rich opportunity for artists to collaborate with world-class academic departments. Another important aspect of the artists' brief is that they are invited to respond and engage with the North West Cambridge Development site, its existing and future communities. They are provided accommodation and studios directly on site, and supported to produce public outcomes for their work.

The Contemporary Art Society and InSite Arts curate the artists in residence programme, artists are selected annually by the North West Cambridge Development Public Art Panel.

Past outcomes from the residency programme have included public film screenings, seminars, discussions, workshops, participatory projects and exhibitions.
