Artist Opportunity: AiRborne Residency

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

The House for An Art Lover ‘Artist-in-Residence’ in support of Graduates in the Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.

You are invited to submit a proposal for AiRborne, a three-month ‘artist-in-residence’ opportunity funded and supported by the House for an Art Lover (HAL), and located in the newly created ART PARK in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow. HAL seek applications from graduates from either undergraduate or post graduate programmes in the visual arts, design or architecture, and from a Scottish Higher Education Institution between 2013 – 2015.

AiRborne aims to give creative practitioners the space in which to develop a new body of work within a supportive and stimulating context. Time focused on individual practice can enable new projects and experimentation, as well as encourage interaction with other artists/professionals. Suggested themes that can be considered, but are not exclusive, are:

• Art & Health and Well-being
• Art & Horticulture
• Art & Heritage
• Art, Environment and Sustainability

Each residency provides opportunities for the exhibition of work to share project outcomes with the wider community and new audiences. Work can be presented within the art studios and project spaces within the ART PARK that also includes the surrounding parkland.

The 2016 AiRborne residency will commence in June, and will include:
• £3,000 (fee and materials)
• A studio with negotiated access to large-scale workshops
• An exhibition space for the presentation of the residency outcomes
• Support from HAL’s Arts Development and Management Team

Deadline: Sunday 15 May

More information and application guidelines can be found here.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
