Artist Studio Residencies

Located in Brighton Marina, the ONCA Barge hosts artist residencies within our dedicated artist studio space all year round.

About ONCA Artist Residencies

Throughout the year, on the ONCA Barge, we host socially-engaged residencies for artists who want research and develop work in response to environmental and social challenges. As well as providing a space for experimentation and social practice, these residencies aim to support collaborative learning and cultural change in Brighton and beyond.

As part of our socially engaged residency format, we host Open Studio sessions where audiences can connect with resident artists and learn about their creative process as they prepare to exhibit work. We also have an Open Studios podcast with transcripts available on Our Stories page. Recent artist residencies on the ONCA Barge include:
