Lead Artist in Residence Required, Allenheads Contemporary Arts

Deadline: Wednesday 2 December 2015.

Artist’s fee £4000

To mark its 20th year, Allenheads Contemporary Arts (ACA) is delivering its ambitious new arts programme entitled ‘As Above So Below.’ We are seeking an experienced creative practitioner to take the position of Lead Artist in this programme, which will run throughout 2016.

This project will bring together an exciting mix of artists, participants and a range of non-arts experts to consider man’s relationship with planet Earth through 3 main strands:

  • Above: Dark Skies
  • Surface: The Skin of our Planet
  • Below: Hollow Earth

Expectations of the lead artist will be:

– to create a new body of work that engages with the brief and fulfills the artists own interests

– to work with ACA curators to engage local and international artists and professional experts from other fields of relevant art/science subjects to cultivate a lively and dynamic pool of contributors to the project

– to carry out holistic research across the project and to develop with ACA curators an educational programme (in the widest sense) with schools, universities and community across the project’s 3 strands.

The artist will be offered:

– the opportunity to present new and existing work at conference, exhibition and via digital distribution

– the opportunity to work with ACA curators to develop the programme

– residential and studio facilities and full use of ACA’s observatory facilities

– a fee of £4000 for a minimum 8 weeks in residence
