About the King’s Artists residencies programme
King’s Artists provides opportunities for artists to be resident within faculties across Kings College London and supports residencies in which artists collaborate with students and staff across disciplines to embrace creativity and take risks, developing new thinking and creative outputs.
The 2022/2023 round of King’s Artists opens on Thursday 23 June 2022 for new funding proposals, and this workshop will provide an opportunity for academics and artists to connect and develop new ideas for collaborations.
Collaborations between academics and artists can open up new lines of research enquiry, enable problems to be approached from new perspectives, lead to platforms for impact through engagement with new audiences, and provide an opportunity for knowledge exchange.
