Join Us

The very nature of The Sorting Office as an incubation space for growing businesses means that our population of resident artists is always in flux. Our residents come to the studios, they build their businesses and, in time, other opportunities present themselves and they move onwards and upwards, taking with them the valuable knowledge, skills and business acumen that they have developed during their time here. This of course means we are always on the lookout for new artists to support and to fill our studio spaces. If joining The Sorting Office is a prospect that appeals to you, then please take the time to look around our site, find out what we're all about and fill out an application form, available at:

Applications to join any of our studios can be submitted throughout the year; simply register your interest by downloading and completing The Sorting Office application form.

All we will need from you is a completed application form, an up to date CV, a covering letter, examples of your work and a professional reference
