Gasworks – Fully Funded Residency in Nepal

Website: https://www.gasworks.org.uk/opportunities/fully-funded-residency-in-nepal

Gasworks, in partnership with British Council offers UK-based artists the opportunity to undertake a five-week fully funded residency in Nepal. The residency is funded by British Council and hosted by a local institution with experience of facilitating international residencies. Host institution will be determined from an open call once the artist has been selected to fully accommodate artistic needs and interests presented in their application/proposal. They are seeking to invite a contemporary artist interested in researching and developing interdisciplinary collaborations with craft communities or specific craft practices during their residency. Outputs may include a pop-up exhibition as well as limited engagements with the local art scene, including at least one public presentation and one activity with young Nepali art students facilitated by the artist and organized by the residency host (and partners). The residency is open to emerging and mid-career artists based in the UK. Ideal candidates will show significant promise and dedication to their work and can demonstrate that they have experience in researching and developing work through craft sector collaborations.

Expires: October 30, 2019
