Arts Residencies

Dartington Trust has a rich history in providing a space for artists to develop their work. Our founders, Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst invited many artists to come to Dartington, and those long-term residencies resulted in the growth of a thriving artistic community.

Artists in residence in recent years include: Ana Maria Pacheco, Sarah Gillespie, Tom HammickTamim al Barghouti, Harrison Birtwistle, Belarus Free Theatre, Tom Marshman, Counterpoint Arts, and Cyland Media Lab. We also offer dance residency space on a regular basis through Dance in Devon, who are one of our Community Partners.
