Elan Valley Artists' Residencies Programme 2019 – 20

Applications are invited from visual artists for the 2019 - 20 Artists Residency programme in the Elan Valley, mid-Wales.  Three residencies are available - one for July - December 2019 and two for 2020. Through the arts we want to better understand, explore and engage with nature, water and issues around sustainability, as well as the rural/urban dynamic. The Artists’ Residencies aim to achieve this.

The Elan Valley is a special place with a unique landscape, story and history. Part of the rugged Cambrian Mountains, it is a beautiful and unspoilt area, which is a haven for wildlife. It is made even more compelling by the Victorian era dams and reservoirs which together create a wonderful, living landscape.

The residencies programme is supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Elan Valley Trust, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Community Arts Rhayader and District (CARAD).
