Wirksworth Arts Festival – The Lodge Project

Website: https://www.wirksworthfestival.co.uk/

The Lodge Project will enable an established UK artist to undertake a funded 3 month residency, in a cottage in Wirksworth in the Derbyshire Dales, from July to September of 2019.  They are looking for someone who doesn’t know the area, and hope that the outcomes might reflect aspects of the area from an outsider’s point of view – the landscape, diverse architecture, industrial past and community. The successful applicant will be provided with a fully furnished C18th century, 3 bedroom cottage, about 2 miles from the town of Wirksworth and a fee of £3,000. Applications are made by email to admin@wirksworthfestival.co.uk, this should include a proposal, of approx 300 words, illustrating how you might approach the residency and what you would hope to achieve, with examples of relevant exhibitions etc you may have led or taken part in. Please email to the attention of The Chair. Any queries about this project via this email address.
