The residency programme has been established as part of HOME Slough’s approach to increasing the range and number of Slough residents engaging with, and being inspired by the arts.  It is an opportunity for artists to reflect and respond to the town centre, the residents of Slough and life in the town.The programme offers residents the chance to meet and work with artists over an agreed period in centre of the town, empowering them by involving them in the creative process.  For artists it provides a space to test artistic ideas and practice in collaboration with the highly diverse community of Slough in a prominent visible location in the centre of the town.This programme supports our ambition to increase the arts offer in Slough, build links with organisations based outside of Slough and contribute to making the High Street a cultural destination for residents.And did we mention fun?  Fun, we’d like to encourage a spirit of fun with our residencies.
Deadline for applications is Monday 2 September
Shortlisting panel is on Wednesday 4 September

Interviews with selection panel: Thursday 12 September

Over the next year there will be opportunities for artists to run family workshops at HOME on the High Street.  We are interested in hearing from professional artists with different skills from paper-cutting to lantern making to knitting who will enjoy devising and leading workshops for families in Slough.

We are based in the heart of this multi-cultural town, and looking for workshops that bring families together, they could be responsive to the ideas of home or high streets (or re-imagining high streets), or more generic.

We will keep the information of all those we hear from and get in touch if and when we have an available opportunity.  Artists will need to have an enhanced DBS check in place to apply.

If you are interested please e-mail your CV to and the types of workshops you would be interested in offering, including your daily rates/fees for the workshops proposed.



HOME Slough, thanks to support from Slough Borough Council, has a HOME on the High Street. We have a temporary space on the High Street that we want to share with local amateur and professional artists and creative community groups in Slough.

If you are interested in accessing the space we would love to hear from you.  We are particularly keen to hear from organisations who offer creative activities that bring families together and groups that reflect the cultural diversity of Slough.
