idle women – Artist in Residence

Deadline: 6pm, Thursday 10 December 2015.

idle women is calling out out for an artist to join us for the spring residency in 2016. This will be the first live-in residency living and working onboard our newly built arts and resource space on a canal narrow boat designed by muf architecture/art in collaboration with local women from Lancashire.

This residency is open to women artists who work across a range of practices including (but not exclusively) spoken word, theatre, visual arts, digital platforms, film, photography, dialogical practice and performance.
