    Other facilities

    DCA as a location/cultural hub. Access and introduction to other cultural providers in the city.


    Support offered

    DCA can provide an artistic platform that is particularly appropriate for artists with an established reputation or those artists that have emerging international profile. DCA invited artists are given the time, space and opportunity to focus on the development of their work. DCA will provide a supportive context in which artists can devise new print based projects, experiment and engage with staff across DCA (editions and publications, curatorial, cinema and education), as well as other artists working in Dundee (DJCAD/VRC and Generator).

    DCA would be pleased to support and facilitate the production of specific projects during residencies and, equally, to ensure that those artists who wish to develop new ideas without the constraints of the completion of a final piece of work are free to do so. The opportunity for individual research and development will be enhanced through interaction and discussion that takes place between the artists and others who actively engage with DCA as a cultural hub. This can be facilitated through a series of informal events, artist's talks and presentations as appropriate.


    Promotional support offered

    We would promote the Artist on our website. Subject to the outcome of the residency we would envisage the inclusion in our editioning programme and further distribution of the artists work at appropriate art fairs and presentations beyond DCA.


    Exhibition opportunities

    We would be happy to consider and discuss other potential opportunities to present work via a range of context (Print space- distribution- public project- collaborative potential). This would be subject to appropriateness of the proposal and further funding.


    Accommodation offered

    Accommodation is available at Ardyne, a well-appointed, shared house in the middle of the village of Cromarty, each room having its own study area, en-suite facilities and shared kitchen. We provide bedding, heating, regular cleaning and free Wi-Fi and there is on-street parking right outside. The local shops are practically next door and the restaurants, beaches, harbour etc, are a short walk away.


    Alternative accommodation

    Alternative accommodation may be able to be provided at another of our venues, the Old Brewery on Burnside Place. This beautiful, converted building can sleep up to 22 in single, twin and triple rooms with communal spaces and shared bathrooms (between two rooms - if other occupants happen to be there), however, as we take fairly regular group bookings and sometimes hire out the entire building, we couldn't guarantee this option would be available.
