Berwick Visual Art and Centre for Rural Economy Artists Residency

Website: https://www.curatorspace.com/opportunities/detail/berwick-visual-art-and-centre-for-rural-economy-artists-residency/1292

Berwick Visual Arts announces its fifth annual residency opportunity for visual artists, in partnership with the Centre for Rural Economy (CRE) at Newcastle University, which specialises in teaching and research on rural development. The residency is an opportunity for an artist working in any visual art form to respond to rural issues within the context of Berwick-upon-Tweed and Northumberland, to draw on the resources offered by the CRE to inform the production of new work, and to bring new approaches to rural research at the Centre. For this year’s residency they invite applicants to respond to the theme of ‘Materials and Materiality’. The residency is for a 6 month period and the artist is required to produce an outcome for public display in Berwick-upon-Tweed at the end of the residency period, though this does not have to be gallery based outcome. The artist is expected to begin the residency in early October 2017 and to live and work in Berwick for the residency period. Berwick Visual Arts provides a small studio for the artist and also a one-bedroom flat in the town for the duration of the residency. The fee available for the residency is up to £7,500.
