Cambridge Sustainability Residency is an annual artist-led project that takes place in the city of Cambridge.

The Residency is an exercise in social choreography, it involves coming together to think, explore and investigate what sustainability is and in what ways it can be manifested in artists’ practices.

Each year the Cambridge Sustainability Residency team varies depending on the people who come together to give each year’s residency shape and direction. As an exercise in social choreography this is fluid and participatory. Each year’s participants and organisers share the space to engage in dialogue, expand their practices and produce work and research.

  1. Hello there,
    My name is Michael Enejison. I am an artist and environmentalist from Lagos, Nigeria. I have a strong focus on sustainability in my art practice.
    How may I take part in your residency?
    Hope to hear from you.
    Thank you.

    • Dear Michael,
      Many thanks for contacting us. When we next organise a residency the open call will be published here and circulated in relevant circles. We have other exciting projects for 2018 and 2019, which includes the organiser publishing a book and curating sustainability art prizes for students.
      Kind regards,
