The Florence Trust studio residency and practice development programme

The Florence Trust provides a dynamic development programme and studio residency in London for twelve artists each year. The programme is designed to support our artists’ artistic and professional development through mentoring, group critiques, workshops and tours and is tailored to their personal objectives. Each of our artists commences their year-long studio residency in August in our Grade-1 listed neo-Gothic church in Highbury and the residency culminates in a curated exhibition each year in July.
