Open Call: Residency Programme 2016-17, The Art House

Deadline: Friday 12 February 2016. Paid.

The Art House is seeking proposals from artists who would like to take up one of four supported residencies at our purpose built studios in Wakefield to help them develop and extend their practice. The callout is open to all, though at least one of the residencies will be reserved for a disabled artist, and one will be for an artist who will make use of our Print Studio.

We are offering:
• A month long residency at the Art House including:
– An artist’s fee of £1,500 (plus a materials budget up to a maximum of £750)
– Free accommodation in our flat within the Art House building
– Free studio space in the Art House (Studio G22, which is 14.5 square metres in size)
– Free access to a fully equipped print studio, with screen print, etching and laser cutter
– The services of a support technician, as part of our commitment to equality

• An opportunity to show either a new body of work created during the residency, or work in progress in our Project Space and potentially elsewhere in the Art House building. We also expect artists to keep a residency blog, participate in an artist’s talk, and if appropriate to run a workshop relating to their practice)

  • Coaching and mentoring through 1-2-1 sessions with our team to support artists to develop their critical understanding of their artistic practice, marketing, and develop audiences for their work (we will look at artists’ support needs at the start of the residency and put together a package of support).
  • Travel expenses up to a maximum of £250 if needed.
