Art Gene are offering an opportunity for an enthusiastic and experienced visual artist to work alongside them on their current programme ‘Extreme Views’. Applications are welcome from artists who can add value to the programme, prompting dialogue and new approaches to connecting communities with landscape, developing an in depth understanding of the environment of Barrow-in-Furness. The artist in residence should have experience of working with communities and socially engaged arts, with a practice that spans both making and exhibiting, and project work in the environment. The artist would need to engage with ‘hard to reach’ and diverse groups of people. The artist will be required to develop work around Art Gene’s current programme: ‘Extreme Views’, community engagement and conversation within the ‘extreme’ coastal landscape; ‘Art Gene & Environment Conference’, an event which will bring locals and experts into conversation about their place; ‘Allotment Soup’, the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space where the community are engaged in sustainable food growing and arts events; ‘Re-wilding Barrow’, local communities are engaged in promoting biodiversity and native wildlife. The selected artist will receive a fee of £3000 for the 4 week residency over 2 – 3 months starting October 2019 – January 2020 and will also receive £1000 for accommodation and travel expense.
