ORBIT: Open Call for March Instagram Residencies for emerging artists/writers




ORBIT is a new online initiative aiming to support and showcase the work of emerging artists and writers. We are looking to host weekly residencies on our instagram page (@orrbbitt) to support the development of artists in the early stages of their careers, and help to expose their work to a wider audience in the hope that they can forge connections with other artists working across the country.

Residencies can consist of whatever the artist desires. Whether you want to just share your work with other people and tell us a bit about your practice, or you have a specific project that you want to carry out that our platform would be suitable for, we will be able to accomodate you.

Residencies will be submitted/accepted through an ongoing open call, with the applications ending at the end of every month, and the residency program beginning at the start of every month.
Each residency will last no longer than a week - You can choose to do just a couple of days, or the full 7 days, as long as you make us aware of this in your application.
The residencies program will be announced on a monthly basis, and featured on the ORBIT instagram page (@orrbbitt), before being archived on our website at the end of the month.
To apply, send us up to 5 examples of your work, a short statement about your artistic practice, and a proposal for what you plan to do during your time with the instagram residency, along with contact details, etc.
If you are not selected for the monthly programme, your details/submissions will be kept on file for consideration for the next monthly residencies.
