Outdoor Arts Residencies

We host around 50 residencies a year for the creation and production of new work for the outdoors and public spaces. We also curate our own programme of R & D residencies fostering innovation and experimentation.

The artists in the background are playing instruments and the artist in the center is talking into a prop megaphone with their other hand stretched out in a 'stop' gesture.

Artistic Programme

101 presents a year round programme of outdoor arts performances and installations, mostly in and around Newbury. We also develop our own creative projects in partnership with artists.

101 Labs and Artist Development

We run a programme of professional development for outdoor artists working across a range of disciplines. Our series of 101 labs includes residential workshops, talks, workshops and symposia.

101 is more than its building and its programme. It’s a holistic space that allows dialogue to happen. It’s often the conversations in our communal dining space during labs and residencies where learning takes place, and new connections are forged, and new languages found around devising and creating
