Residences at Lighthouse


Our residencies strive to connect artistic practices across different disciplines, mediums and physical spaces.

By providing an environment for the research, development and production of new work, the residencies allow us to support a more open creative process. Residents also feature in our wider programme, through associated commissions, events, workshops, and performances. The residencies encourage interdisciplinary practice and collaboration between residents, partners and the wider Lighthouse community.

Our ambition is to form enduring relationships with artists and practitioners working at the intersection of digital art, design, sound, technology, science, film and the wider creative industries – and to offer a space which encourages risk, experimentation and testing.

This year, as part of our Re-Imagine Europe programme, we’re welcoming three duos comprising a visual artist and music or sound artist/practitioner to take part in a two week residency at our venue in Brighton.

Re-Imagine Europe aims to empower a digitally connected generation to develop and explore new art and new ideas in response to the current social and political climate, examining issues such as rising nationalism, climate change and migration. The project connects Lighthouse with participating cultural organisations in the Netherlands, France, Croatia, Austria, Germany, Norway, Slovenia and Estonia throughout the four-year collaboration.
