The Fire Station: Artist in Residence is currently running the first edition of its Alumni Residency programme, bringing together artists from previous residency years to collaborate and expand their repertoire.

The residency began on 15 January and will run until 15 July. The programme ensures the Fire Station’s connection to its alumni by providing workspaces, resources and networking opportunities with visiting artists, curators and arts professionals.
