Welcome At Brisons Veor Artist Residency

Our mission is to provide support for creatives facing challenging circumstances. Brisons Veor is a residential workspace set in an inspiring and unique location, where creatives in any medium can take time out to work on a project, away from the day-to-day distractions of their home lives. We recognise the diverse obstacles that artists may encounter, from financial struggles and health issues to full-time caregiving responsibilities or the lack of adequate studio space. Our commitment is to offer affordable live/work space, ensuring artists have an environment where they can focus on their projects.

In some cases, we provide bursaries to fully fund a one-week residency.
We assess each application on its own merits, welcoming artists engaged in research, exhibition preparation, or facing impending deadlines who require a studio space for concentrated work.

The studio is available year-round for self-funded residencies at affordable rates, for a maximum period of four weeks.

‘…as a teacher, it has been a sheer pleasure to pour all my creative energy into my work and it has made me realise that this balance needs to shift somehow when I return.’ (photographer)

‘…a new way of working…calm and rest from all the usual hassles of life, time to stitch, weave and recoup’
(textile artist)

‘a glorious place for music…practising, composing. I’d brought my other instruments…found the piano….it’s been played a lot.’

‘It is very moving to realise that what we do, art, is valued enough to provide such a protected haven for our process… this is the most wonderful place.’

‘….have been down an old mineshaft…use tin and copper in my glazes… …shall treat the materials with greater respect having learned about the working conditions in the mines.’
