Cove Park is Scotland’s International Artist Residency Centre located in the stunning setting of the Roseneath Peninsula and overlooking Loch Long. It offers funded residencies for individuals and groups to develop their practice. Artists are housed in purpose built buildings and a brand new Artist Centre offers state of the art spaces and facilities.
Founded in 2000 by Peter and Eileen Jacobs, Cove Park has offered funded and self-funded residencies from one week to three months to some 1,600 artists. They range from distinguished practitioners such as Turner Prize winners Simon Starling and Elizabeth Price, Booker Prize winner Margaret Atwood and acclaimed theatre director Tom Morris, to organisations such as National Theatre of Scotland, Scottish Book Trust, Glasgow School of Art and Royal Opera House. Residencies actively respond to the diversity of contemporary artistic practice in all the art forms, whether performing or visual arts, crafts, film, literature or translation.
