Gongoozler is an open call residency, exhibition, and professional development opportunity on the Grand Union Canal in Milton Keynes taking place between July – November 2017. Gongoozler has been created by the Canal and River Trust in celebration of Milton Keynes 50th Birthday. Visual or performance artists/collectives of emerging national significance are invited to apply. A Gongoozler is a person who enjoys watching activity on the UK canals. The selected artist(s) are invited to immerse themselves in the life of the Grand Union Canal through the locus of the MK Marina, on the towpaths, and from on board a dedicated canal boat. The artist(s) will share their methods directly with boaters and towpath users on site and at the MK Gallery, through a series of workshops/events, meet established artists from Arts on the Waterway and MK Gallery, receive mentorship, and create new public artwork for performance/exhibition on site in October. Following the residency documentation of the project will be exhibited in Milton Keynes. Fee: £9500 inclusive of artist time (approx. 30 days) materials, installation/production costs and expenses.
