Before its development, the Drawing Studio was the original drawing space in the RHA where Academicians gathered to draw and meet on a weekly basis. This commitment to peer learning and artistic mutual support is a continued value of the Peer Residency.
The residency provides studio support to graduates transitioning from full time study to professional practice. Participants are invited to share the working space and exchange working methods within the Institutional framework of the RHA.
In addition to this, participating artists offer open studios and talks on the work made while on the residency. Graduates from NCAD, DIT and IADT have participated in the programme to date.
