IOU has created a rolling 6 month opportunity for artists to live, work and develop their creative practice at the IOU Hebden Bridge Hostel.

The Artist in Residency opportunity is open to artists specialising in any art form interested in IOU’s approach. The residency includes living rent and bill free in a private artist bedroom to develop their practice and create an art project  in response to time spent living at the Hostel.

Following an open call which received a high number of responses from artists of all disciplines and communities we have appointed Beth Cockcroft as Artist in Residence from May – October 2023
