Acme Studios is offering a studio residency, to run from October 2012 to March 2014, based at our new studio building at Matchmakers Wharf, Homerton, E9.
Matchmakers Wharf has been developed on the site of the former Lesney Matchbox Toys Factory. We are seeking an artist who will engage with the history of the site, and the people associated with it, as the artist’s principal ‘subject matter’. The residency will provide a selected artist with a significant opportunity to develop a project or projects with a free studio for 18 months (worth £7,500) and a bursary of £10,000.
The artist will be supported by Acme and project partners Hackney Cultural Development team and PEER.
