FTHo offers a rare and valuable opportunity: a place to live, work and engage with the public while being mentored or closely supported by the curatorial and education staff. Living and working in the house-sculpture fosters research-led projects and experimentation by allowing a long-term engagement, the result is often significant site-specific work. A residency is always a two-way process for us, bringing new and exciting perspectives for FTHo and the living archive.
Residencies are assigned through open calls and invitations. Please check the site regularly for open calls.

RCA MA Writing Programme Residency
From Autumn 2018 to Autumn 2019
Flat Time House is delighted to announce a new collaboration with the Royal College of Art, MA Writing Programme. For 15 Months between Autumn 2018 and Autumn 2019 students will work with and from FTHo to produce an event or series of events culminating with the group collectively acting as editors of the 2019 edition of NOIT, FTHo's annual journal of John Latham's art and ideas.
This residency continues FTHo’s role as a centre for alternative learning, and will give an opportunity for the students to experience first-hand how an artist or a writer might approach a residency in a collection or public institution. The writing students will have access to the John Latham Archive and will explore Latham’s practice, his theoretical ideas and their continued relevance. The form, nature and content of the events and publication will be determined by the group, but will derive from the context of sessions in the space. FTHo will help guide and inform the students to produce something that takes into the account the context, environment and history of the space, in order to generate something ambitious, while also sensitive and germane.
