Baltic Bothy Residency 2024

We are pleased to be partnering once again with Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art to invite an emerging artist from the North East of England (County Durham, Northumberland, Teesside or Tyne and Wear) to undertake a week-long residency at Sweeney’s Bothy on the Isle of Eigg. The residency will take place 6 – 13 July 2024.

The Baltic Bothy Residency provides the opportunity for an artist to work in a unique environment and have time and space to research, think, and develop their practice in the inspiring landscape of the Inner Hebridean Islands. The residency is supported with a £500 artist’s fee, a travel bursary and the Bothy accommodation, a live/workspace, for seven days.

Following their residency, the selected artist will be invited to participate in Bothy Project’s public programme.

Artists who have previously been awarded this residency include Katie Cuddon (2017), Julia Heslop (2018), Grace Denton (2019), Holly Argent (2021) and Sarah Jenkins (2023).

We will be hosting an online Q&A session to answer questions about the location, site and facilities on Tuesday 13 February, 17:00-18:00 GMT (email to book your spot). We recommend that applicants read Sweeney’s Bothy Travel & Facilities page before submitting their application.
