Fire Station Residency 2010-2015
Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2010-2015 artists were selected by artist and educator Cath Hawes, artist Gayle Chong Kwan, and Acme's founder and former Chief Executive Jonathan Harvey.
