At the heart of 101 is our year round programme of artistic residencies.
We host over 50 artistic residencies a year, supporting artists from across the globe to make exciting, innovative work for the outdoors and public spaces.
“I love staying, being residential at the place that I’m playing. The ideas fester when you’re not in the studio.”

James Wilton Dance talk about their R&D residency at 101
“What a great place to create work at, we felt very well looked after. It's was very fruitful to have so much focused time at 101, it really allowed us as a company to fully engross ourselves in the work. Also it being the first time I had worked with 4 of the performers, living at 101 allowed us to successfully accelerate our bonding process of a new company working together.”Jack Co-Founder/ Artistic Director, Ramshacklicious
