OPEN CALL FOR BALTIC BOTHY RESIDENCY 2019
DetailsBALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead is supporting an emerging artist based in the North East of England (County Durham, Northumberland, Teesside or Tyne and Wear) to undertake a week’s residency at Sweeney’s Bothy on the Isle of Eigg, in partnership with the Bothy Project. The residency will take place from 1–8 September 2019.
The BALTIC Bothy Residency will provide the opportunity for an artist to work in a unique environment and have time and space to research, think, and develop their practice in the inspiring landscape of the Hebridean Islands.
The residency is supported with a £500 artist's fee, a travel bursary and the Bothy accommodation – a live/work space, for seven days.
During their residency participants are invited to share their skills or knowledge with the local community through hosting a workshop, event or open studio. Following their residency participants are invited to share their research with the wider public by submitting a blog entry to Bothy Project's website.
