Braziers International Artist's Workshop Residencies

Braziers is an artist-led organisation that promotes and supports international exchange for visual artists. Founded in 1995, they organise an annual workshop that invites about 25 artists from around the world for a 2-week group residency.

Braziers Workshop removes artists geographically and conceptually from their usual studio practice and brings them together in a way that is mutually beneficial, contributing to a developing international dialogue. Artists from Africa, Central Asia, Europe, India, North and South America have taken part, working in a variety of disciplines and media: time-based, photographic, film/video, new media, installation, painting and sculpture.

In recent years, Braziers have enabled selected artists' residencies to be extended for a further six-weeks in a number of host venues. Art Space Portsmouth hosted the following artists:

2007 - Larissa Sansour (Denmark)

2005 - Sharon Molloy (USA)

2004 - Vineta Kaulaca (Latvia)

Additionally, in 2006, two Art Space Portsmouth members, Natalie Dowse and Mike Blackman, participated in a reciprocal Arts Council England and Braziers International Artists Workshop Fellowship at 'Art Home' Riga, Latvia for six weeks.
