PC residencies

Applications for the Prospect Cottage Residencies and the Research and Development Programme are now closed - we will annouce successful applicants in due course, late entries will not be considered. Successful candidates only will be notified by the end of November 2023.

We are not seeking to set in a time warp a precious object of historical significance for posterity only: but, crucially, to resuscitate and ensure the continued vibrational existence of a living battery: to clear space around it and feed the energy of a resource that was only ever intended to be that. This is a vision not of taking but of giving.

Just as Derek was self-determinedly dedicated to process above product, to collective work, to empowering voices that might feel alienated, my excitement about this vision for Prospect Cottage lives in its projected future as an open, inclusive and encouraging machine for the inspiration and functional working lives of those who might come and share in its special qualities, qualities that, as a young artist, I was lucky enough to benefit from alongside Derek and so many of our friends and fellow travellers.
