Opportunity: UNFIX 2021 at the Barn residency

One week paid residency at the Barn between 7-13 June, as part of UNFIX Festival 2021.

The Barn is pleased to be partnering with UNFIX festival to offer a residency to Scotland-based artists at the Barn, Banchory, Aberdeenshire.

The Barn has a rich history of exploratory work in art and ecology. Our activities include live performances, projects and presentations across all art forms, intending to reach a diverse audience. For 2021, we have partnered with UNFIX festival, Scotland’s leading festival of performance and ecology, to deliver a residency at the Barn. This will take place between the 7-13 June 2021.

The week-long residency will be financially supported and we are looking for artists at all stages of the practice. We are particularly interested in hearing from artists working in contemporary performance, interdisciplinary practice, dance, moving image and live art.

The outcomes of this residency will be shared as part of UNFIX festival 2021 and we are interested in receiving proposals that bear COVID-19 restrictions in mind. This may include but is not limited to the realisation of existing ideas, virtual sharing or work-in-progress sessions (live or pre-recorded), artist-to-artist conversations, blog posts or reflections, moving image, audio works, podcasts, self-directed scores, postal projects and more.

Priority will be given to proposals that have clearly outlined and developed how the audience will interact with the work as part of the festival.

To apply, please visit the Barn’s website where you will find information on what we are looking for, what the residency will offer and full guidelines.

The application deadline is 5pm 16th April 2021.

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.
