The studio and residency programme seeks to provide artists, creative practitioners, curators, cultural producers, and writers with the opportunity to activate and present their projects. 


Each residency lasts 2, 4, 6, or 8 weeks (depending on the scope of residency and project) and serves as an incubator to catalyse dialogue through interdisciplinary engagement and exchanges.


The residency is site-specific, responding to and engaging with dblspce’s current site, surrounding vicinity and environment. While the residency is not outcome-driven, interested applicants should activate dblspce as a site of encounters and happenings through exhibitions, workshops, talks, presentations, etc.


The residency is open to Singapore-based individuals and collectives. Selected residents will be hosted between May to December 2021.
