Fermynwoods’ artist residency programme is primarily based on nearby Forestry Commission land within Fermyn Woods. The renovated site of Sudborough Green Lodge is the hub for our educational activities and the delivery of our programme.

We invite international artists to undertake residencies at the site where they are encouraged to use the surrounding meadow, forest and arable land as a resource for thinking, research, learning, experimentation and creativity. Research possibilities are available through the SSSi status (Site of Special Scientific Interest) of the adjacent meadow, which supports existing and future contemporary artists whose work may incorporate a broad range of environmental issues.

Residency artists also have the opportunity to work with local and neighboring schools, community groups and the general public to inform their work during their stay.
