Special Dispensations is a monthly vending machine based artist residency programme located in Norwich, UK.

Special Dispensations is curated by Honor Ash, an artist, performer and facilitator based in Norwich. To submit to Special Dispensations send a proposal to submissions@specialdispensations.net. For more information on what to include in your proposal, guidance for artists on dimensions of dispensable works, and FAQs, head here. For a list of past resident artists and more about the work we've programmed, head here.

Special Dispensations does not currently receive any external funding to support the programme. We'd love to be able to cover all expenses and offer an artist fee in future, and sales from the machine take us about 30% of the way there.
