Fire Station Residency 2005-10

Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2005 - 10 artists were selected by artists Hayley Newman, Erika Tan and Julie Umerle, art consultant Tessa Jackson, and Acme's founder and former Chief Executive Jonathan Harvey.
