International Residency Programme

Grey Projects welcomes international applicants to apply for our residency programme. Each residency period runs for a minimum of 3 weeks. We are looking to support artists, curators, critics, and other participants in the visual arts, but applicants from other fields (such as dance, literature, and design) are also welcomed.

The residency space is furnished with a single bed, table, chair and a wardrobe. It has an attached bathroom, wifi-access and air-conditioning. Additionally, resident will have access to the workspace in our library. Please note that this residency does not culminate in an exhibition or any similar event. Presentation opportunities are independently determined with the resident after his/her arrival.

We’re located in Tiong Bahru – Singapore’s oldest housing estate that’s also known today for its cafés, design studios, independent bookstores, Streamline Moderne architecture, and its art community.

We ask for a modest fee of S$400/week, which goes towards the upkeep of our non-profit space.
