PATRICK ALLAN FRASER FOUNDATION, HOSPITALFIELD
Overlooking the North Sea, Hospitalfield House surrounded by its own small estate, is situated a mile from Arbroath on the east coast of Scotland. Originally built during the thirteenth century as a hospital, the building was dramatically altered between 1850 and 1890 by Patrick Allan Fraser, who bequeathed it to the Patrick Allan Fraser Trust devoted to 'Education in the Arts'. Today Hospitalfield is a place of study for students of the arts from all over the world. Some of the institutions who have used facilities at Hospitalfield in recent years include, Edinburgh College of Art; Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia; Moorehead State University, Minnesota; University of Oregon; Central Michigan University; School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Scottish Enterprise, and the European Commission. Previous ROSL residencies at Hospitalfield include artists from Canada, New Zealand and Singapore. Further information www.hospitalfield.org.uk.
Over the past fifty years the Royal Over-Seas League has developed a diverse portfolio of arts projects devoted to the career development of talented young professional artists and musicians from the UK and the Commonwealth, as well as presenting literary events at its central London venue.
