Enquiry Residencies

E

Applications are currently closed.

Our enquiries are cross-sector residencies grounded in research, combining theory and practice. They allow artists, researchers and other practitioners to work collaboratively to delve more deeply into questions about music’s place, purpose and function in the world. 

We’re interested to hear from you if you need space to develop and test your ideas. This may be with collaborators or partners, or you may need to work with a particular community to measure the benefits and impact of your work.  

 

What can you expect from an Enquiry? 

Support of an Enquiry Residency can be flexible depending on the needs of a project and its trajectory. It could be a handful of days over a few months, or it could be a week of intense working. We provide an equipped space to work, space to sleep, travel expenses and lunch on site. 

What do we expect from you? 

We expect you to be open, curious, and willing to engage with our creative campus beyond your own idea, which may include taking some time away from your project to meet with other artists and practitioners also on site. Practically, you may be expected to allow public access to the work that’s being undertaken. 

"The enquiry experience gave us time, space and permission to think and create as a collective which is what we had hoped for. What I wasn’t expecting, was the magic of the environment of Snape, and what that would give us in inspiration, excitement, energy, restoration, support and perspective."

"The overall support from the Snape team was outstanding. In all honesty I know the team felt quite overwhelmed to be treated with such care and genuine respect. We are looking forward to extending and developing this important work with Snape."
