Art Space - Sponsored Studio


Please note: The Art Space Portsmouth Sponsored Studio Award is currently under review whilst we are planning our future residency programmes.

The ASP Sponsored Studio Award

The Sponsored Studio Award is offered annually and aimed at early stage contemporary fine artists who live, or are planning to live, in the Portsmouth area. This award offers a free studio space for six months. It supports artists who have recently embarked on a career as a professional practitioner or who are returning to their practice after a significant break. The award is aimed at artists who would otherwise find it difficult to afford studio space in the Portsmouth area.

The selected artist is offered:

  • Free studio for six months
  • Free membership for one year
  • Professional development resources with ARC at Aspex
  • Selected access to facilities at the University of Portsmouth (by arrangement)
  • Business and network advice from CIBAS
  • Participation in our Annual Open Studios
  • An exhibition or event at GASP (Gallery Art Space Portsmouth) in August 2011
