ONCA hosts socially engaged residencies for artists who want to research and develop work in response to environmental and social challenges.


The 2024 ONCA Associate Artist Residency Programme supports four socially-engaged artists to research, develop and exhibit artwork at ONCA. This includes:

  • Exhibition space for 3 weeks
  • A two-month studio residency space at ONCA starting one month before their exhibition
  • £600 fee to support the development of your work
  • A materials and expenses budget

During the exhibition they will be expected to attend their exhibition launch event and co-deliver one public workshop/event.

Our artist residencies have different themes:

Please note ONCA does not expect artists to produce an entire body of new work. The residency is an opportunity to research, develop and exhibit existing work in response to the above themes. We invite artists to approach the residency in a way that works for them given the parameters of the programme and fee available.


Please note that only registered ONCA members can apply to take part in this opportunity. ONCA membership must be bought before submission. More information about our membership programme can be found here.
