Quarry Bank Artist in Residence
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.
