Salary: GBP Residency fee + food, accommodation, travel
Application Deadline: January 29, 2018 5:00 pm
TERRESTRIAL is a new arts commissioning and producing organisation based in the West of England. We believe in the power of co-authorship – in the wonderful things that happen when artists and groups of local people work together to explore creative ideas.
We are looking for two groups of artists, from a diverse range of backgrounds and disciplines, to join short paid residencies in the West of England in Spring 2018.
Keynsham 12 – 17 March
Weston-super-Mare 9 – 14 April
These residencies form part of TERRESTRIAL’s mission to instigate and support bold arts projects that are created in partnership between innovative artists and groups of local people. We hope to bring together four artists in each location, who will work with us over the course of a week to explore the town, meet with a number of community groups, and contribute to a vibrant dialogue about socially engaged arts projects.
As well as a £500 fee for the five-day residency, TERRESTRIAL will provide local accommodation and food – each evening artists will share meals and stories, with host producers helping to cook and lead discussions.
These residencies are open to artists of any discipline – you might be a writer, a composer, a choreographer, a theatre maker, sculptor, filmmaker, game designer etc., or make work that doesn’t easily fit into formal boxes. We would like to bring together artists who have an established practice of socially engaged/ participatory/collaborative projects with those who have a track record in their own field (eg. music, theatre, visual art, film etc.) but have not worked in this way before. This opportunity is open to individuals and companies/collectives (maximum two people to attend from a group).
