Residencies at Oriel y Parc allow artists to take inspiration from the beauty of the National Park landscape and work with local groups and schools to create original pieces of art.

The residency also provides an opportunity for artists to interact with selected pieces from Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales.
