Artist in Residence Opportunity Making Space: toward a public artwork for Glasgow Women's Library

Deadline: July 24, 2009, 5:00 pm

Two 6-month Part Time Artist Residencies, based within Glasgow Women's Library (GWL). The Residencies offer an exciting opportunity for two artists to work with the rich resources of Glasgow Women's Library - staff, learners, users and archive - to achieve the aims and focus of Making space: toward a public artwork for GWL.

Funded by the Scottish Arts Council's Public Art Fund, the two Artist in Residence opportunities are offered to develop ideas, visuals and participatory working methods that can inform GWL's ambitions to realise a public artwork for their new premises at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow. The Residencies will support the artists' investigation of Women's histories and representation in the Public Realm, as well as potential means of engagement and consultation with diverse constituents of GWL, including Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Women's Groups, Adult Literacy and Numeracy (ALN) groups, Women Make History groups, homelessness and Violence against women projects), and the GWL's archive and wider resources.

For further details please download a job description, cover sheet and application information or call GWL on 0141 552 8345 or e-mail: [email protected]

Please note that due to the nature of this project, this post is open to women only under Section 7 (ii) d&e of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975.

Interviews will be held on: 27 or 28 August 2009.
