HARI Summer Programme
July-September 2024

Incorporating Multiple 'Inaugural Responsive Micro-Residencies'


Our initial home was in a public-facing meanwhile shop, courtesy of Prospect Shopping Centre and AxisWeb. It was a great space for connecting artists and the public through residencies and events, and for HARI to trial a variety of ways to operate, but in February 2024 we were given 3weeks notice to vacate due to change of ownership – an example of the precarity faced by artist-led projects.


Fortunately, we were introduced to Seb and the building at Francis Street/Caroline Place, and immediately fell for the charms of its space, light, and post-war industrial architecture. We are excited by the opportunities this new space offers for HARI to create even greater opportunities for artists to develop ideas, network, produce and share.

During RE-VIEW, HARI will be considering what this alternative space can enable us to do, and exploring ideas around how we can disseminate artists’ research and experimentation with audiences.

Micro Residency Opportunity


HARI is looking to engage artists across a range of practices and interests to celebrate this new premises in all of its post-abandonment glory, by responding to both the physical presence and possibilities of the space.


In reference to the building’s number, HARI is proposing that it will be available to each artist for 25hours. This could be a concentrated period or spread over a few weeks, for solo contemplation and making or including invitations to others for conversations or activity around your reflections.

During the summer period while these residencies take place, we will hold a small number of events inspired by the ideas followed in them, like our Monday Musings discussions, that we would love you to contribute to where possible. At the end of the programme, in late summer / early autumn, we will hold a culmination event with an exhibition of ideas and work produced during the RE-VIEW programme – HARI will discuss with each artist what their contribution to this may include.


HARI takes a bespoke approach to each artist encounter to bring the most value, therefore all proposed parameters to the residencies are open to discussion. HARI regrets that this is an unpaid opportunity, but will aim to enrich the experience for participating artists with its accompanying events, and may be able to support with some materials and equipment.
