About the programme
Resident artist and Artblock founder, Diana Shepherd along with Park Manager Michael McNaught manage the Arboretum Arts Residency Programme which is now in its eight year.
It is open to all forms of creative activity, particularly those in some way harmonious with the environment or heritage of the park.
Residencies typically run for the duration of a month although we are happy to consider longer or shorter periods.
Diana is happy to work in collaboration with artists in the Orangery if, for example, an artist wishes to develop work which has not yet been created or they would like additional support.
Artist's do have the option to take over the space entirely.

What is the cost?
There is no charge on either side of the exchange. In return for the use of the Orangery we would discuss ways in which the artists would give back to the community. This could be open studios or specific workshops to the value of half a day per week of residency.
Would you like to be considered for an Arboretum Arts residency?
