The Art House seeks proposals from artists who would like to take up one of three supported residencies at their purpose built studios in Wakefield to help them develop and extend their practice. The callout is open to all, though at least one of the residencies will be reserved for a disabled artist.  Residencies are one month long, to take place in May or June 2018, or March 2019.  Selected artists will receive: an artist’s fee of £1,500; a materials budget up to a maximum of £750; free accommodation within the Art House building; free studio space (14.5 square metres in size); free access to a fully equipped print studio; and the services of a support technician.  There will be an opportunity to show either a new body of work created during the residency or work in progress, as well as coaching and mentoring, and travel expenses up to a maximum of £250 if needed.

Proposals are welcomed from artists at all stages of their development and working in any type of contemporary visual art practice, including photography, new media, fine art, artists’ moving image, live art, crafts, design, architecture, site-specific, socially engaged and interdisciplinary practices.

Expires: January 26, 2018
