Corridor8 works in partnership with arts organisations and education institutions to deliver residency and commissioning programmes, meeting a demand for critical and creative writing and supporting writers to sustain and develop their practice. Since 2016 our partners have included The Tetley, Leeds Arts University, serf Studios, Castlefield Gallery, The International 3, Humber Street Gallery, Yorkshire & Humber Visual Arts Network, Yorkshire Sculpture International and Bloomberg New Contemporaries. We are currently working with Leeds Arts University (for a fourth time), Manchester Museum and the University of Leeds on two online residency programmes, to be launched in 2020/2021.
For each partnership, event programmes and content are evolved through conversations with curators, artists, writers, editors and designers. Duration of residencies and publication formats vary, depending on each project’s themes and the nature of the collaboration.
All residency and commissioning programmes have been supported by Arts Council England and partner organisations, with some additional contributions from local council and private funders. We have a longstanding relationship with our designers at dust collective and Sam Baldwin and Piper Haywood at SB-PH, experts at producing collaborative print and online publications.
