Residents is a Goldsmiths CCA programme, inaugurated in autumn 2021, that sees artistic collectives and initiatives, including local community and student/alumni groups, take up residence in our front gallery space over a long term. Up to 10 groups will be in residence at a time and receive funding. Each will use the space regularly to host their activities, as an additional resource for their core work.
Residents was initiated to proactively increase the diversity of voices and practices within the CCA, to share our resources and to encourage conversation, collaboration, and partnership. The design of the gallery space has been led by APV (Access, Power & Visibility) in close consultation with the first Residents groups, responsive to the needs of each and with accessibility, hospitality, and welcome as foremost concerns.
