Our City as Studio online residency for ages 16-19 is back, from 12-16 April.

Participants will join professional artists, Kate Mahony, Poppy Tibbets and James Scott to explore the film-making process and create a collaborative short film and soundtrack.

You can follow the project as it develops online via our blog and social media.

By taking part in this free, five-day residency, participants will achieve a Silver Arts Award and create their own City as Studio Zine to be on display at Modern Art Oxford, later this year.

By the end of this City as Studio residency participants will know answers to these questions:

· How do professional artists make creative, unique films?

· What artistic and technical skills go into filmmaking?

· How do art films develop from a creative idea to being shown to public audiences?

This event has now sold out.

You can follow the residency online to see how the group work together to create a collaborative film and soundtrack throughout the week.

Booking for this free residency is essential.

Please note: To take part in the residency you will need to be available for all five days and have access to a computer or laptop, an internet connection and a mobile phone. If you need support with equipment in order to take part, please get in touch.

All participants will receive a free project pack including a phone mount, the materials to make a DIY pistol grip and your zine, in the post, before day one of the residency.

Modern Art Oxford is committed to providing a safe environment for young people taking part in activities online. If you are under the age of 18 we will require consent from your parent or carer before taking part.
