Application Deadline: apply by 5pm (GMT) on 17th June 2016
GRAIN and IED Madrid are seeking submissions from artists, photographers and curators from the West Midlands, UK, to apply for a residency in Madrid, Spain. The applicant must have a photographic practice.
The residency is a special opportunity for an emerging artist or curator to research and devise new work that contributes to their professional development, portfolio and the cultural significance of the spaces/hosts/communities.
This opportunity is part of a broader series of continued professional development opportunities conceived and developed by GRAIN in partnership with IED Madrid, supported by Arts Council England and Birmingham City University.
GRAIN and IED Madrid will be the host and will provide introductions, contacts, networks, information about accommodation and the local area etc.
The Residency has been designed as an exchange. At the same time a residency will be undertaken by an artist, photographer or curator from Madrid/Barcelona in the West Midlands, UK.
We are looking for artists to engage with this opportunity, to gather information and inspiration from experts in other fields, to develop their practise in new ways and to create work that engages wide ranging audiences.
The material outcomes of the residency must engage with photographic practice. The outcomes may take the form of new work for a portfolio, research outcomes, new writing, temporary artworks created with input from a community. It is expected that the artist will present work in progress and give at least two public talks about the experience.
Residency Fee: £1,500
The selected artist will be paid the bursary in instalments to be agreed on appointment.
This fee is inclusive of all travel costs, subsistence, materials and accommodation.
