artists in residence

Glasgow Sculpture Studios supports the production of new work and new ideas. We create opportunities for artists to develop their practice through residencies, international exchanges, and production commissions.

Our aim is to offer artists the time, space, and resources to experiment with new approaches and ways of working, pushing their work in new directions.  Alongside creative and technical support from the team here at GSS, we also support the sharing of knowledge and ideas by developing new networks and connections between our residents, our community of studio holders, and our wider community of arts professionals across the city.

We do this in a few different ways;

In Residence

These projects are developed as part of our Learning & Engagement Programme. In Residence is interested in understanding ‘sculpture’ as a site-specific practice, creating stronger and deeper connections between our artists and our local communities.

Self-Funded Residencies

These are open to artists and practitioners of all levels and at any stage of their career; applications are welcome at any time, click here to learn more.


We also developed residencies and projects in collaboration with other cultural organisations. We have a long-standing relationship with Triangle France-Asterides in Marseille and Glasgow School of Art’s MFA programme, and also supported production residencies for Glasgow International, The British Council & Hospitalfield House, Arbroath.
