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 four weeks 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 also includes mentoring and coaching sessions to facilitate deeper discussions with the resident and their practice.

In the fourth cycle of residencies, we are seeking proposals that respond to the theme of “in proximity___”. Feminist scholar Donna Haraway proposes that positioning is a key practice in grounding knowledge. As such, we are interested in research projects that attend to ideas and knowledges that are in-situ, nearby, and adjacent to the ways we make, think about, and enable artistic practices. This can include (but is not limited to) object-oriented and material explorations, embodied and performative approaches, participatory practices and community-building.  

The residency is open to Singapore and Southeast Asia-based individuals and collectives, and we welcome proposals from practitioners across all fields and disciplines. Selected residents will be hosted between May 2024 to January 2025. If selected, SEA artists are required to independently source for their funding and accommodation.
