Quarry Bank Artist in Residence

Website: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/quarry-bank/features/artist-in-residence-opportunity-at-quarry-bank

The National Trust is offering a two-month residency and commission opportunity at Quarry Bank, Cheshire for an emerging to mid-career contemporary visual artist to make new site-responsive artwork. Built in 1784, Quarry Bank was one of the world’s first factories and became a cotton mill, with workers’ village, child apprentices’ accommodation, owner’s house, pleasure grounds and gardens. The residency will take place from June – July 2017, with an exhibition/presentation period from September – November 2017. There is an artist fee of £3000 and a production budget of £4500 to cover the residency period and delivery of the presented outcome.

Expires: March 1, 2017
