Erlend Williamson Art Fellowship

EWAF is an Orkney based residency established by Barbara and the late Edgar Williamson that is dedicated to the support of promising artists, curators, designers and other creative practitioners, as well as promoting and commemorating the work of the late Erlend Williamson.


EWAF aims to grow an annual programme of artists in residence at Linkshouse Birsay bringing a diverse range of international artists to make work in the context of Orkney and the surrounding community.


Laura Mansfield’s project presents the first residency undertaken at EWAF.
