Pier – Residencies for Black Artists

Website: https://lighthouse.org.uk/a/Pier-A-residency-1.pdf

As part of their Re-Imagine Europe programme, Lighthouse has developed a ‘residency at home’ series awarding support for three black artists. This is an opportunity for artists, practitioners, producers and technologists to expand their practice, research and develop ideas and methodologies. Lighthouse would like the outcome of this residency to inform a commission of new work in 2021. The residency has the thematic guidance – Pier to Pier and will harness new developments in technology and can be immersive, responsive and interactive, as well as exploring new ways of working. Lighthouse would like to encourage proposals to use the structural framework of a pier to influence and inspire how outcomes of the residency might be developed. The selected artists will receive a fee of £800 plus an allowance for equipment hire, technical support and materials (up to £500)


Expires: July 24, 2020
