This strand enables an artist to work with participants within an organisation on a specific project, programme or event. The Artist in Residence Scheme covers all art forms and focuses on collaboration between artist and participants in order to realise an artistic project, programme or event. Depending on the project to be realised, the role of artist may sometimes be that of maker, sometimes that of facilitator. Specifically, it is intended to benefit and enrich the work of artists by expanding their artistic experience and body of knowledge. The artist's development through the collaboration is one of the key criteria of such a scheme.

The Embrace programme defines a residency 'as a situation where an artist works and sometimes resides within a particular locale, context or building, with a view to creating work either alone or in conjunction with a group of people. We consider residencies a key aspect of an artist's development and recognise that there are many different types of residencies and contextual experiences with different emphases and benefits. A residency might offer an artist the chance and the space to work alone, to create work influenced by his/her surroundings or to work jointly with other people.
