Open Call for Research Residencies for North-East based Artists
Residency Duration: 3 Weeks
Artists Fee: £1500 (two bursaries available)
Deadline for Applications: Monday 5th September 5:00pm (GMT)
We invite artists based in the North East of England (Tyne & Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and Teesside) to apply for a three-week research residency at ISIS Arts to take place any time up until the end of February 2017.
Like many in our country we are wondering what the impact of leaving the EU will be. We know that our place in Europe has changed and our cultural ties loosened, yet we hope to preserve as much of the spirit of collaboration and cultural cross-fertilization that has been the driving force of our continent and our union for so long. Following the initial shock we are now keen to move forward to find a new confidence in our relationship with Europe. To do this we need to understand our place and where Europe fits in to our collective future in this region.
Within this context we want to find out what artists in our region are thinking about, working on, and planning for the future. We will provide a regional artist with the space and time to research a new project or idea without the constraints of having to necessarily produce a body of work; the emphasis for this residency is on research not on finished art works.
There are two residency opportunities currently available and we are also interested in taking forward any ideas and projects to form part of our future programme. All artists will have access to ISIS Arts studio, equipment and critical support. All artists will present their work as part of an artist talk event and produce a short report upon completion of the residency.
Artists may apply individually or as part of a group (however the award per residency will not change).
