Whether you're an artist or a cultural organisation, hear case studies and receive advice on developing creative partnerships between museums, galleries and artists.

Watts Gallery - Artists' Village was the home of G F and Mary Watts, two significant 19th-century British artists who established an artistic community in Compton, Surrey and helped to cultivate creative skills and enterprise to regenerate local communities. Watts Gallery was the first gallery to be built to house and display the work of a single artist. Today the Artists' home studio is part of the Artist's Studio Museum Network and continues to offer opportunities for artists to engage in residences and creative collaborations.

Join this event to find out about setting up Artist in Residence programmes and how to get the most out of being an Artist in Residence. Hear inspiring examples of collaborations between artists and museums and share practical tips.
