RSA Residencies for Scotland is an artist-led scheme which provides valuable research and residency opportunities for artists. It forges important networks with centres of artistic excellence across Scotland, ranging from traditional residency venues to specialised production facilities.
Open to visual artists at all stages of their careers, the emphasis is on enabling a period of research, development and production, as well as on the acquisition and exchange of new skills and experiences. Artists can apply for funds of up to £5,000 and are responsible for managing their own residency, in discussion with the partner venue.
Partner venues for 2024 include DCA Print Studio, Airlie Artist’s Residency in Angus, and Forgan Arts Centre in Newport-on-Tay, alongside other venues across the country. Duration of residencies are flexible but must be completed before the end of 2025.
Deadline for applications: Sun 14 January 2024
The RSA is an independently funded institution whose purpose is to promote and support the visual arts in Scotland.

Launched in 2009, the project is now offered on a biennial basis.
