We’re excited to announce the launch of an artist residency programme which will take place within the area of this project over the next year. The new Endangered Landscapes Artists Residencies and Arts Prize is opening for applications on 7 January 2021 and will be receiving applications until 7 February 2021.
The residencies will take place between June 2021 and April 2022. There is funding of up to £3,500 for the successful residencies, with the opportunity for a further £1,800 through the arts prize.
This programme is looking for artists interested in connecting local communities to landscape through the arts and culture, notably those whose practice can both reconnect people to nature and communicate the challenges and opportunities landscape restoration provides. Each artist will need to undertake an aspect of public engagement as part of their residency. This could be the result, for example, of an interactive art installation, an exhibition, a poetry reading, a publication, performance, or a public artwork. It’s essential that the artist, or group of artists, have a significant link to the local landscape.
