Beginning in Summer 2016, Bon Volks will offer two free studios to visiting artists, writers and designers. Bon Volks will work primarily with partner organizations to identify individuals who would benefit from time to develop and experiment with work. With each residency, there will be opportunity to exhibit or perform in the Bon Volks Project Space and engage with the wider community

Bi-annually, there will be also be an open call for applicants as well as a specific residency aimed at Kent-based artists under the age of 25. To be notified of the open call schedule, please sign up to our mailing list here
