Folly, a leading digital arts organisation, and Lanternhouse International are pleased to be seeking new applications for the Digital Artist Residency Scheme 2009.
The scheme will be of particular interest to established digital artists seeking time and space to develop new works, research innovative ideas, make new connections and explore technique or production.
Based at The National Creation Centre on the edge of the beautiful Lake District in Cumbria, UK, successful artists will be offered accommodation and a flexible and open-ended opportunity to push their work forward and creatively engage with the two partner organisations.
We are seeking innovative and experimental artists who are naturally collaborative and interested in leaving a local legacy through participatory activity.
Please apply before 2nd March 09 by email to wendy.rogerson ‘at’ folly.co.uk and include
* Your reason for applying
* What you hope to achieve through the residency and anticipated outcomes
* Your ideal time-scale
* Some examples of your recent work
* A completed equal opportunities monitoring form, available to download from folly’s website at www.folly.co.uk/opportunities.
Shortlisted artists will be invited to visit Lanternhouse on the 16th or 17th March 09 to meet representatives of folly and Lanternhouse, talk through their ideas in more detail and share expectations of the residency.
Further questions can be directed to Kathryn Lambert, folly Creative Director or Jay Haigh, Creation Centre Director at Lanternhouse International.
We welcome applications from international applicants.
