Shipping Container Housing
Cove Park’s 2008 programme began in April and continues until November. This is our most comprehensive programme to date, bringing together over fifty national and international artists working in a wide variety of art forms and at all stages in their careers. We offer up to ten residencies at any one time and these residencies may last from one week to six months.
Artists are given the time, space and freedom to concentrate on the development of their work. Cove Park provides a supportive context in which artists can devise new projects, experiment and engage with artists working in different fields or with different approaches to their practice.
Cove Park is happy to support and facilitate the production of specific projects during residencies and, equally, to ensure that those artists who wish to develop new ideas without the constraints of the completion of a final piece of work are free to do so. The opportunity for individual research and development is enhanced through the interaction and discussion that takes place between the artists on residency. This is facilitated through a series of informal events, artists talks and presentations.
