Opportunity: Open call – SEED BED Residency

A funded three-week arts residency in an off-grid eco cabin in the Scottish Highlands during April 2022

The Seed Bed Residency is a collaboration between Circus Artspace and Black Isle Permaculture & Arts (BIPA), supported by Creative Scotland.

We are looking for a contemporary visual artist to undertake a three-week residency in a timber, off-grid eco cabin sited in BIPA’s organic permaculture garden and smallholding in the Scottish Highlands during April 2022.

This opportunity is open to artists, at all stages of their career, seeking to develop their practice through reflection, simple living, and new modes of research, inquiry, and production. The resident artist is also invited to engage with local artists, networks and communities.

This residency opportunity is ideal for artists working in the fields of sustainable living and food production, climate crisis, and ecology, in dialogue with people, places, and ecosystems. As we emerge from the global pandemic, artists are invited to spend time on this residency considering our relationship with nature, ecology and the climate crisis. How can creativity respond and guide us on a regenerative and sustainable pathway into the future, for both ourselves and our habitats?

Artist’s fee: the selected artist will receive a fee of £1,500

To apply: for more information and details on how to apply please visit https://www.circus.scot/seed-bed-open-call

Deadline: 7 January 2022, 5pm

We aim to promote equal opportunities for all artists. If you are facing any barriers or have additional access needs which stop you from applying, please get in touch.

For all queries, please feel free to email Circus Artspace at hello@circus.scot

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.
