Berwick Visual Arts Residency

Website: http://www.berwickvisualarts.co.uk/artists/13/residency-applications-now-open

Berwick Visual Arts announces a 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 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. In this year’s residency they seek creative thinking and expression about questions of scale that meet community needs and challenge research questions. The residency opportunity is open to UK and internationally based artists. The residency opportunity requires the applicant artist to have been out of college (BA graduate) for a minimum of 3 years, those who have completed an MA and / or PhD are also welcome to apply. The successful applicant will receive a bursary of £8000 for the production of new work alongside free accommodation and studio space in Berwick-upon-Tweed.
