About

A Place for Art(ists) to Live and Work

ArtFunkl is located in Manchester, UK. The project is in a modern townhouse near to the city centre, which is easily accessible via public transport or bicycle. There are various types of residency available and the criteria for these changes. See the Residency Application section of the website for details.

ArtFunkl is designed to be a place where artists can concentrate and focus their energy. Living accommodation and studio space are provided to allow artists ultimate flexibility with their timetable so that they can immerse themselves in their chosen project without having to contemplate traveling times. A stay at ArtFunkl is most suitable for independent people who like to create their own opportunities, and are willing to meet and start dialogues with local artists and curators.

There are 3 bedrooms and 3 studios available, as well as a Live/Work space for writers or artists working in digital media. Studios 2 & 3 are in a shared space in the converted garage, Studio 1 is a separate room for the use of one artist. The studios are also used as the venues for Open Studio events at the end of the residency.

Please note that because the shared studio space is in a converted garage there is no natural light. Daylight bulbs are provided to compensate for this, and there is a fan to create the best possible light and air conditions in the studio. Studio 1 and the Live/Work space both have windows.
