The Weekend Academy welcomes proposals from schools and community groups to develop and manage artists’ residencies, both at Byam Shaw and within the community. Residencies inspire artists and participants alike, re-energising participating staff and students.
Lynn Cox, EYoDP artist-in-residence, 2003
Artists-in-residence have the opportunity to expand their practice both through teaching and discussion, and via access to technical and workshop facilities at Byam Shaw. Students and communities working with artists-in-residence have close and regular contact with a practising artist, whom they get to know on a personal and a professional level.

Tim Dixon, postgraduate student at Byam Shaw, undertook a residency at Bridge School, Elthorne Road, leading workshops with students with autistic-spectrum special needs.
