Brisons Veor Charitable Trust
Brisons Veor is a residential workspace set in an inspiring and unique location, where creatives in any medium can take time out to work on a project, away from the day-to-day distractions of their home lives.
Sturdily built in stone with a slate roof in the 1800s, the property was originally part of the boiler house of the Cape Cornwall Tin Mine. In 1978 an architect converted the building into a dwelling and our benefactor, Tracy O’Kates, purchased the freehold. It is believed to be the westernmost dwelling on the English mainland.
Brisons Veor was managed on an informal basis for artist residencies from 1978 until 1992, when the property was formally made over to the Trust and registered with the Charity Commission. Since then it has been managed by the appointed Trustees, and has continued to provide year-round affordable residencies for creatives working in all media.
Details of how to apply for a residency, images and accounts from previous residents are to be found at the website, www.brisonsveor.org.uk
