Every Summer PDSW provides studio space and the support of its team to a number of Visiting Artists. Visiting Artists can explore their practice, test out new ideas or develop work for touring. There is no expectation for a finished piece, but plenty of time for conversation and creativity! The Visiting Artists scheme is a way to introduce your work to the PDSW team in a low pressure way. There is an open call for this opportunity every January.  In March 2020 independent dancer/choreographer Jazz Gritt and independent Changemaker and producer Natasha Player joined PDSW staff Zannah Chisholm and Jeanette Hinton to select this year’s Visiting Artists as well as the Company in Residence.

Visiting Artists of 2020 are: Chris Andrews, Sophie Arstall, Kwame Asafo-Adjei, Emilie Barton, Marie-Louise Flexen, Sam Gilroy, Vicki Hearne, Kane John Mills, Rachel Pedley and Caroline Reece.

We’re also delighted to have hosted Cohan Collection Lab each summer since 2018 and though in 2020 they had to move online we hope to host them again in 2021.

Artists who have an established relationship with us may also visit at other times of the year as part of an ongoing conversation.

Applications are now live for our Visiting Artists and Company in Residence schemes 2021 – 22.
