The Studio

A colocation hub for individuals and companies who are trying to make the world a better place in pioneering and creative ways.

Kaleider is a production studio. We play at the edges of live performance, installation and digital. Often in public space.

A significant part of our practice is to hold a space for others to make work too. We give away space to people from all sorts of backgrounds in the belief that something exciting and surprising will happen.

We host artists of all varieties, producers, academics, scientists, young people, many people that fit into more than one category, and several that need a category all to themselves. Our list of Residents can be found here

Becoming a Kaleider Resident

Kaleider Residents are working on, or interested in working with others on creating new experiences, products or services. We’re particularly interested in people who are wrestling with big ideas in their work.

There’s room for both the intimate and the epic. And we’re really keen on playability. We imagine the majority of residents will be working in the arts sector, creative industries, creative technology, research, and/or science. But we also want to be surprised. We are currently working with organisations, people and in areas such as Universities, Bartlett School of Architecture, schools, robots, TV, arts and artists, fabricators and makers, publishers, a symphony orchestra, animation, technologists and the Met Office.

If you would like to to become a Kaleider Resident please get in contact with Jocelyn to arrange a meeting. The Kaleider is a curated studio.

All offers made to prospective Residents will be subject to filling out an application form and understanding and signing of an Agreement and Contract of Care, which will form the basis of a conversation about the value of your residency to us and to you.

We welcome applications from anyone regardless of gender, age, race, sexuality, religious beliefs, ethnicity, disability, and we actively seek to create a diverse Resident community.

Please read the full invitation to apply here which includes a link to the online application form.
