Ironbbratz Graduate Residency Programme Opportunity – Calling All Creative Graduates!


Ironbbratz CIC & Studios are pleased to launch our annual Graduate Residency Programme. We are now accepting submissions for our residency opportunity from September –April 2012/13.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 3rd August 2012 by 5pm.

Ironbbratz Graduate Residency Programme places a strong emphasis on the experience of community and collaboration and its relationship to developing sustainable, self-led practices. The opening stages of the programme will feature dialogue between existing tenants, the studio management team and graduate residents. This discursive stage will aim to focus the individual’s experience of the programme towards practice specific work models. The residency concludes with the staging of individually tailored public outcomes in May 2013. Being reflective of each participant’s practice and wishes the public outcome stage has no traditional restrictions.

The residency facilities include 8 months in a supportive and communal environment with24 hour access Wi-Fi equipped studio spaces in the heart of the Merchant City. The residency cost, including all bills and facilities, is £50 per month per tenant and is an excellent way to work like a professional within the budget of a recent graduate.

The programme also offers the residents the option to tap into an existing extended network of professionals in a range of creative industries to gain periodical feedback and guidance.

Applicants must have graduated in 2010, 2011 or 2012 to apply. Collaborative and group practices are also welcome to apply. For an application form please contact us at and return by Friday 3rd August 2012 by 5pm. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask for advice.
