MAST is a home for artists to create bold, inspiring and entertaining work and our Artist Residencies support artists creating performance-based work. This work can include (but is not limited to) theatre, dance, circus, music, comedy and spoken word.

Artist Residencies are tailored to the needs of each artist/project and may include:

  • Space for research and development of new ideas
  • Opportunities to scratch work-in-progress 
  • Mentoring - including dramaturgical or producing advice, advice on community engagement AND fundraising.
  • Seed funding of between £250 and £1000

This page is updated with applications for residencies, so keep an eye out. Any questions about artist opportunities, residencies, network meetings, scratch nights or general enquires please email
