Together with North Lands Creative, we are collaborating on an initiative to improve and increase dialogue between an artist from the Highland & Islands region in Scotland and an artist based in Berlin at a time when mobility of artists has been badly affected by the pandemic.
The 4-week interdisciplinary and collaborative residency will focus on dialogue and interaction between the two artists. The primary purpose of the residency is to explore new ways of thinking and working based on the sharing of experience, knowledge and skills both physically at the artist designated studio location and also virtually.
We are particularly interested in hearing from artists or makers who wish to explore painting and mark making on glass and the technique of mould blowing. Each residency will be supported by the studios technical teams therefore experience in glass making is not essential. The opportunity may be of interest to painters, printmakers, designers, craft makers and also non-visual artists including writers and musicians but applicants must have an interest in exploring the medium of glass in their work. The AiR concept encourages experimental strategies aiming to provide the residency artists with the experience of
accomplishing something collectively.
We operate an equal opportunities programme and do not discriminate against age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability.
