Artist House 45, Leeds  http://artisthouse45.tumblr.com/ Artists House 45 is a live/work artist residency within a traditional two-bedroom, back-to-back home in the residential area of Beeston, Leeds. Owned by Leeds City Council the property had been unoccupied and was renovated by East Street Arts who have secured the house to push the boundaries of socially engaged practice and community activity. The Artist House 45 mission is to unlock and share experiences, learning, resources and relationships by housing artists who create opportunities, encourage sustainable projects and encourage residents to become co-producers. The opportunity to change the building into a creative space has been developed by East Street Arts in partnership with Leeds Empties, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and another grant giving trust that are providing support for the community engagement elements of the project. The Goodwin Development Trust – Artist Residency house, Hull Thornton, Hull http://goodwintrust.org/category/arts/l The Goodwin Development Trust has always been involved with various Arts projects across Hull and the sub-region, both independently and in partnership with other organisations. They take great pride in our reputation for embracing unusual concepts – whether it be an award-winning documentary about young slam-poets, tree carvings of mermaids, a sell-out Remembrance week performance of music from the Great War, animated Kurdish folk tales or converting an abandoned Victorian pub into an arts centre with astro-turf for carpet The Goodwin Development Trust felt that the residents of Thornton (the council estate where Goodwin began and is still based) should be given the opportunity to see the determination and commitment of their community captured and portrayed on canvas. And so began the Artists in Residence initiative which sought out local gifted art students and partnered them with local people – with startlingly impactful results that generated huge interest.
