Berwick Artists’ Moving Image Residency 2018 (United Kingdom)
Berwick Visual Arts (BVA) and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) are pleased to announce applications are now open for their annual artist's residency. Now in its sixth year, previous artists selected include: Cecilia Stenbom (2013), Katie Davies, (2014), Paul Rooney (2015), Lucy Parker (2016) and Charlotte Prodger (2017).
The residency is an opportunity for a moving-image artist to create a new work in Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland that could benefit from either of the following:
• the possibility to spend six months in Berwick to produce new work at a crucial development point within their practice, with Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival’s support.
• the opportunity to develop current research or existing project ideas within the context of Berwick and the wider county of Northumberland
The residency is for a six-month period beginning in April 2018 with a bursary of £7500 and private accommodation and studio space in Berwick-upon-Tweed. The outcome of the residency will be premiered at Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival between 20th and 23rd September 2018.
The residency is open to artists currently resident in the UK and Europe, or international artists who already have permission to work in the UK.
Applicants should also be able to demonstrate a commitment to their artistic practice through a strong track record of creating new work through projects, exhibitions and commissions.
Deadline: 14 December 2017
