Berwick Visual Arts (U.K.), Call for Applicants: Visual Artist Residency with stipend

Deadline: March 22nd, 2013

From their website: Berwick Visual Arts is pleased to announce the second of its annual residency opportunities for visual artists.

Berwick upon Tweed has for many years supported professional artists through its International Gymnasium Residency programme managed by English Heritage and supported by Arts Council England. Our second residency opportunity is in partnership with The Centre for Rural Economy (CRE) at Newcastle University. The CRE is a University Research Centre which specialises in interdisciplinary social science and applied policy research into issues around rural development.

This residency opportunity offers an artist the opportunity to develop new work in Berwick-upon-Tweed over a six month period that explores current rural issues, changing concepts of rurality or rural identities.

The residency opportunity is open to UK and internationally based artists.The residency opportunity requires the applicant artist to have been out of college (BA graduate) for a minimum of 3 years. Those who have completed an MA are also welcome to apply

Applicants should also be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to their artistic practice and evidence a body of work and strong track record, through new work, projects, exhibitions, publishing, and/or commissions.

The funding available for the residency is up to £12,000. This figure is based on a residency period of 6 months spent living and working in the area. This figure is inclusive of artist’s commission fee, accommodation in Berwick, material costs and production costs for the final outcome.
