BolwickArts is an annual residency programme for artists who make site specific work. The location for the event is Bolwick Hall, a Georgian Country House set in 52 acres, close to the market town of Aylsham, Norfolk. The programme is organised and curated by Caroline Fisher, and the first set of residencies took place in 2003. Four artists are either invited or selected from an open submission, and are provided with a place to stay and studio space for three weeks. Accommodation is in a comfortable converted stable block, which is usually let out as a holiday cottage. In 2003 the artists were paid a fee and an amount for materials and travel through the support of Arts Council England, East, and Norfolk County Council. The artists are given the freedom to research aspects of the Hall and its grounds and at the end of the three week residency period the work produced is on show as an exhibition. The aim is to give the artists involved the opportunity to experiment, to explore their working practises, and to co-operate with the other artists and curator to make a cohesive final exhibition. The programme also brings contemporary art relating to its environment to a local and regional audience.
