Aimed at emerging artists who haven’t exhibited their work publicly outside of an educational setting or those who haven’t had a solo show. Artists will receive a free 2-week residency at the gallery, which will end with an exhibition of their work.

The residency will include curatorial and marketing support as well as learning how to write artist statements and CVs, press releases and applying for funding.

To apply email: with a short description and images of your work.


Professional development for performance artists. Artists will work with Lock In curator to develop new performance art pieces. There won’t be a present audience but all performances will be documented through interviews, curator’s responses and Q&As etc. Performance can be filmed for artists to use to present to programmers and for future work but won’t be displayed as a part of Gallery Lock In.


Gallery Lock In works with artists internationally to present video and animation work to Brighton audiences, overcoming geographical distance.



Gallery Lock In aims to support Brighton Fringe and Brighton Photo Fringe by providing a space for artists during the festivals.
